Domaine Jean Ginglinger Pinot Blanc 2017
'Jean Ginglinger is based in the central Alsace village of Pfaffenheim which lies 12 kilometres south of Colmar where he cares for 6.5 hectares of prime sites including two Grand Cru vineyards (Steinert and Zinnkoepfle). The family are not recent arrivals having been involved in viticulture here since 1610!
A pure, tense, energetic Pinot Blanc that we first tried at the annual festival at Chassignolles in the Auvergne. Jean was showing his wines to visitors to the festival and was a talking point amongst the wine cognoscenti present. Pinot Blanc is widely planted in the Alsace as well as in Champagne, Lorraine, and Burgundy where it is valued for the minerality and acidity that it provides. This Pinot Blanc is very food friendly and can be matched to a wide variety of dishes. Last year this wine sold out very quickly and we expect the same this year as it is a beautiful drink and great value at this price.'
