First VT & SGN in Pinot Gris


Another proof of the quality and the early nature of the 2007 vintage in Alsace ? 
We have just picked a small amount of Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles in Pinot Gris.

We wanted to keep the news confidential for a few days before releasing the information. On September 20 we picked these nectars that were controlled by the INAO as per the legal procedure in place since 1983. The certificate was issued by the inspector the following day.

You will note on the picture the progression and the duration of the extraction which was noted on the settling vat. At the beginning of pressing towards 15.30 the must ran with 18° potential, towards 23.00 it reached over 30°. This proves that we are in the presence of excellent botrytis where the strongest concentrations are reached at the end of the pressing with the highest pressures.
