Reviews of purchase Leon Beyer, Pinot Blanc, Alsace AOC, 2011
Wine has a golden color.
Taste wine - perfectly balanced, with well-integrated acidity, notes of white fruit and berries and a long mineral finish.
Elegant aroma of the wine is filled with notes of lemon, sour fruit, white flowers (acacia), dried apricots and spices (white pepper and cloves).
The wine is excellent as an aperitif, goes well with any meal. It should be drunk chilled, but not cold.
