Pinot Gris Grand Cru Kitterlé 2011

28,90 €
The Kitterlé was first mentioned in 1699. In 1782, twelve "schatz" of vines were found to be the exclusive property of the Jesuits of Ensisheim. This hillside has been marketed under its own name since 1830.

The Kitterlé is a volcanic sandstone terroir that occupies a unique site on the edge of the mountain, forming a rocky spur with three exposures (south-west, south and south-east). The light, sandy soil held back by huge dry stone walls only allows a limited yield (25 to 35 hl/ha).

Don't hesitate to combine it with a meat pie, quail stuffed with mirabelle plums, Bresse poultry in half-mourning or blue-veined cheese such as Bleu de Termignon.
