Natalie's Score: 87/100

Being an exceptionally food-friendly wine Pinot Blanc makes for a nice alternative to Chardonnay. From one of Alsace’s most formidable domains, this version displays subtle aromas of apple, sweet citrus, grapefruit, pear and mineral notes. It has good length, dry with medium weight, and has balanced acidity. You will find it quite refreshing. Pure white melon and grapefruit: refreshing and vibrant. Clean without oak. Great aperitif.

Pinot Blanc food pairings: asparagus soufflé, cold pork roast, goat cheese, Indian cuisine, charcuterie, foie gras.

Pierre Sparr is considered one of Alsace’s most formidable domaines. Here they deliver aromas of melon, spice, pear, apple, and white flowers. The palate demonstrates a superbly balanced integration of all elements, and is quite juicy and flavourful with intense fruit replays. Very pleasant and a great value, this Pinot Blanc will make for a nice alternative to Chardonnay. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
