K&L Notes

This cuvée from the cousins Mittnacht is designed specifically for the Asian market--Christophe's wife is Japanese--and because of this goes better with sushi and sashimi than almost any other wine we can image. The 2011 is composed of 40% Pinot Blanc and 20% each Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. The name comes from the Japanese art of inking a fish to create a stamp. Clean, with fresh acidity, apple skin notes and a hint of perfume.

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Alsace
