EXPRESSION Charles WANTZ
Vine type : Expression white : Blend containing about 80 % of PINOT GRIS + 20 % PINOT BLANC
Expression rosé : 100 % PINOT NOIR
Cuvée EXPRESSION is an innovating concept rooted in the need to make drinking wine more straightforward easier to access, with no discouraging complexity or excessive sophistication.
Nonetheless, this cuvee claims to be a true wine, one that represents a genuine introduction to wine appreciation. Its reference codes break away from the traditional Alsace wines, thus enabling a new generation of young consumers to claim it as their own, as well as enticing them to discover new paths in the understanding of wine – and go beyond.
Comment : For these wines we wanted to keep a maximum of fruit with a refreshing taste. Early bottling allows us to keep its arrogant youthfulness. Its heedless, even slightly insolent adolescent charm will seduce you. It generates immediate pleasure, is easy to understand and will appeal to your tastebuds.
"Primeur" type vinification : The White is made from a majority of "Pinot Gris" grapes. After fermentation and a quick-filtering to remove any sediments, the wine is blended and bottled, leaving just a touch of carbonic gas remaining from fermentation.
The Rosé is made from "Pinot Noir" grapes with a short maceration, then fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats as to retain all the fruit but without any noticeable tannins.
What should you drink it with ? These two wines are easy to marry with different types of meals and can be sampled on many occasions.
The Rosé prefers grilled meats and cold cuts, pizzas and all types of various salads.
