Why do we love it?

Pinot Gris Roche Calcaire 2014 by Domaine Zind-Humbrecht is here and its impressive! We are talking about a legendary Pinot Gris from an epic vintage, by the most iconic winemaker of the region. If you're wondering, how would a wine from a Master of Wine taste like, then you should definitely taste this one, because Olivier Humbrecht is the first MW of France!

Olivier is the third generation of the winery and had the duty to do his best to honor his legacy. The first step was to become Master of Wine to better understand wine. Then, in 2002, he decided to apply biodynamic cultivation to his vines. Today, he is fairly considered the maître of Pinot Gris. His wines impress everyone and reflect the history of the winery and the unique Alsace terroir. Specifically, Pinot Gris Roche Calcaire 2014 comes from limestone soils that incredibly favor Pinot Gris, allowing it to express its aromatic character better. The vintage of 2014 was a good year that gave wines with classic, Alsatian finesse and high acidity. Wine Enthusiast, Wine Advocate and James Suckling scored it with 93 points in 2016, but we are confident that if they tasted it again now, it will surely score 4-5 points higher.

Olivier Humbrecht MW thinks Pinot Gris of 2014 should ideally be enjoyed from 2017 to 2024. So yes, its time is now but it will not complain if you keep it in your cellar a bit longer.

Tastes Like

It has medium golden color.

Impressive nose combining aromas of ripe pear, smoke, minerality and apricot. Gradually honey, bergamot and tangerine make their appearance.

On the palate it has medium to full body, crisp acidity and creamy sensation. Pear, peach, honey, lime, candied lemon peel, nuts, toast and a feeling of wet stone fill up your palate in every sip. Spicy aftertaste that lasts.

PINOT GRIS ROCHE CALCAIRE 2014 - DOMAINE ZIND-HUMBRECHT

PAIR IT

seared scallops with lemon sauce, trout with butter sauce or chicken with creamy mushroom sauce.

Roasted duck

1 duck, about 3 kg
1 kg of potatoes, peeled, cut into large pieces 
4 onions, chopped
50g of duck fat
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped sage
2 lemon zest

Preheat the oven to 220 ° C.

Season the duck with salt and pepper in the cavity.

Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft, then drain them well and mush them. Fry the onions in duck fat until they get a golden brown colour. Add the garlic to the potato puree and mix with sage, lemon zest and pepper. Put the mixture in the duck's cavity. Put the duck on a spacious baking tray in the middle of the oven. Bake for 30 minutes in 220 ° C.
Then, lower the temperature to 180 C or 160 C and roast the dusk for 2 ½ hours.
When the duck is cooked, remove it from the oven and leave it to rest for 15 minutes.
We recommend serving it with red cabbage and baked potatoes.
