Woodman Wines & Spirits recommends an 90+ point Alsatian Pinot Gris…

Trimbach Réserve Pinot Gris 2016
$31.95 | Vintages #971762

The Draw:
In a year when we could all use a little upgrade, consider this Pinot Gris. Universally praised with 93-points Wine Enthusiast and 90-points Wine Spectator, its credentials are rock solid. The profile? Rich, ripe, textured, complex – everything we look for. True-to-type aromas of pear, honey, yellow plums and lemon zest, underpinned by a precise seam of minerality. There’s so much going on, it begs us to take our time, savour and meditate on it. The kind of experience that makes you fall in love with wine again. The expert hands at Trimbach can do no wrong.

The Winery:
The winemaking history of Maison Trimbach dates back to 1626. Since then, twelve generations have tirelessly drawn on their passion for Alsace. This familial legacy has established one of the most sterling reputations, particularly for the incredible Clos Sainte Hune vineyard Riesling.

Pairings and Tips:
Wines from Alsace can be a Swiss-Army-Knife at the table, appealing to novices and experts alike. Ripeness and richness harmonizes with so many dishes at this time of year. Schnitzel, choucroute garnie, or a well-glazed ham would be magical matches. Serve chilled but not too cold — and consider keeping it off-ice after serving to warm up and let the wine express itself.
