Pierre Sparr Mambourg Pinot Gris Grand Gru 2002

$38 Pinot Gris is usually an Italian wine, but Alsace also produce Pinot Gris with unique characters. This wine has baked apple and stone fruit aroma and almost oily or buttery texture with a hint of sweetness. Balanced acid, full bodied with long and complex finish. This is a very good wine at $38.

I would pair it with soft or semi-firm cheese, goat cheese, sheep cheese, that are not too salty. Sushi, butter/cream based pasta, crab, lobster. Just avoid overly salty or acidic food.
