2011 Pinot Gris “Zellberg”

Domaine Ostertag

2011 Pinot Gris “Zellberg” Domaine Ostertag - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


André Ostertag’s dry, terroir-driven Pinot Gris are a unique breed, a style unparalleled by the myriad expressions of the grape worldwide, including others found in Alsace. A better reference point would be a fine white Burgundy. This wine is, after all, raised in used “Burgundian” 228-liter barrels—sourced locally, in the Vosges Mountains—and shows the nuance, complexity, and subtle creamy element we find in great Chardonnay. André refers to Zellberg as “geological chaos”: the vineyard has clay, limestone, and pink sandstone in which Pinot Gris finds a naturally full-bodied, yet delicate and refined expression. It is perfectly suited to rich, earthy cuisine: try mushroom dishes or root vegetables when your palate demands a change from the usual suspects. –Anthony Lynch
