Dirler-Cadé "Lieu-dit Bux " 2013

100% Pinot gris
A still white wine from the Alsace region of France.


Rich and aromatic. Peach and apricot.

Tasting Notes

What stands out about the 2013 Lieu-dit Bux from Dirler-Cadé is its mouthfeel which is unctuous but shows some great freshness at the same time. This sort of vibrant acidity is rather uncommon in Alsace Pinot Gris.

On the nose and palate alike there are notes of peach and apricot. There is a certain sweet touch to this wine yet it is very balanced.

The finish is medium long to long.

Pinot gris

White wine grape

A white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera, Pinot gris, pinot grigio, or Grauburgunder is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. It is thought to be a pinot noir mutant clone with a grayish-blue fruit, hence the name, but the grapes can range in color from brownish pink to black and even white. The grapes grow in small pine cone-shaped clusters, which may have given it the name pinot. This grape’s wines range in color from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink, and it’s one of the most common grapes for skin-contact wine.
