Domaine Rieflé Steinert Grand Cru Pinot Gris 2016
The Riefle brothers farm 1.6 acres in Steinert, certified organic, their pinot gris at the lower part of the parcel. The name of the cru refers to the stoniness of the hillside, where ooiyic limestone comes to the surface, a soil built on the skeletons of microscopic sea creatures., which now provide structure to the ground and show a talent for water management that sustains the vines. This wine is tight and airy as the soil structure might suggest. firmly dry, with a refined meadow-flower scent and enough juicy pinot gris flavor to round it out.
