this bottle takes me back to Alsace.
i spent a weekend in Strasbourg in 2006 protesting/partying in front of the European parliament that's located there.
no wine was tasted as i sticked to self imported bottle of zubrowka vodka, drops of potent LSD (that were dropped to the tail end of the vodka by a really short vicious smiling man - true story) and local pilsner beer that i remember fondly that's called 'meteor' and came in large 750ml bottles(pretty good ice cold and just ok after the sun warmed up the last 3rd of the bottle).
and now... 13 years later. different tastebuds. but I'm still the same person essentially.
100% pinot gris
off dry officially but feels dry.
pale green 👀
🧀 rind, green apple, pear, very fresh lemon and finely chopped greens👃
full body. I'm guessing the rs helps to build it.
medium plus acidity.
creamy, tart and a bit fruity with added white pepper and maybe even ginger 👄
long lingering pleasent creamy 🎯 like tasty and slightly bitter 🍬
great wine, no doubt about it.
tasty and complex, plays with you and changes every sip, but always superb.
excelent vfm (110 nis). expensive but works hard for your money.
need to try the winery Riesling now.
had it all day on it's own while vacationing.
soft and spicy cheese platter could have helped but I'm too full. — 10 days ago

A clean and inviting nose of green apple, lemon, light toasted nuts complements an elegant body with creamy mousse and flavors of grapefruit, green apple, bread pudding, hint of seashells and honey. The acidity is beautifully rounded and about perfect.
From 375ml bottle. Should have bought more. — 8 days ago
Wow, ännu maffigare nu än jag testade för ett par år sedan. Mogna äpplen, brioche, hasselnöt, saffran, mogen citrus. Fyllig och matig och riktigt lyxig pinot noir-karaktär. — 2 days ago
Meaty savoury notes on nose. Palate is very savoury - hardly any fruit characteristics left. In hindsight not meant for the long haul and possibly better to have drunk a few years ago to get more fruit input. Medium bodied palate with M minus intensity. Usually sells for about a third of La Chapelle. — 17 days ago
