Alsace season 5: Rieffel Pinot Blanc 2008

Of all the Alsace varieties, Pinot Blanc is the one that gets forgotten most easily, I reckon. It’s underrated. Good Pinot Blanc is lovely. This is a nice one, from Lucas and Andre Rieffel.

Rieffel Pinot Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2008 Alsace
13.5% alcohol. Full flavoured with notes of citrus, herbs and straw, as well as subtly toasty notes. It’s almost like a still Champagne in flavour profile, with fresh acidity and a honeyed richness. Dry, lively and precise. 90/100 (£13.95 Berry Bros & Rudd here)
