£22; 14.5%

Main course at Anne-Marie’s was fish, but with sweet potato and beetroot. So I wanted and Alsatian, rich, Pinot Gris, and knew this would be a good wine, whether or not it made a good match. It turned out to be very good indeed with the sweet potato. Despite being 14.5% already, it still had apparent residual sugar. But as a wine, outstanding: rich, deep gold. A rich, spice-laced nose, beautiful balance and power on the palate. And most memorably, that ‘fizz’ of energy on the palate that I’ve had with other Zind-Humbrecht wines.
