About the Wine
Situated between the peaks of the Vosges mountains and the Plain of Alsace, Riquewihr is right in the heart of the Alsatian vineyards. The wines of the Riquewihr region have long been considered among the best of Alsace and here, since 1634, the Sparr Family has been writing the story of Alsace wines.
In keeping with the family custom of excellence, the wines are best described by their subtle expression characteristic of the grapes of the Alsatian land. Pierre and Charles Sparr belong to the 11th and 12th generations of winegrowers of the family Sparr. They perpetuate the family traditions, faithful to the spirit that has guided past generations. Their production reflects their well-known expertise and family passion for excellent wines.
Pinot Gris has a long-standing tradition in Alsace, made in all styles from sweet dessert wines, dry table wines, and even cremant. With a family name like Sparr, that has a history going back centuries in the region. You are sure to get an age-worthy expression of one of Alsace's "noble grapes".
Tasting Notes: Mouelleux “soft” styled Grand Cru, the wine is golden and honeyed. With a touch of vanilla oak and time in bottle, the wine is a blend of floral, grapefruit, and quince fruits. Elegant, with depth and length, the wine is a perfect companion to your next cheese plate.
