Petit Gres Alsace 125g
Very similar but milder than the Maroilles, Grès d'Alsace is made on the rich soil of the Alsace region, a very favourable environment for the cherry trees that make a wonderful kirsch Spirit which is then used to mature the Grès d'Alsace.
Grès d’Alsace is carefully matured for a minimum of three weeks then hand packed and decorated with a nice fern leaf from the region. It has the typical yeasty aroma of a washed rind with hints of mushroom, barnyard and smokey garlic. The aroma is quite robust compared to the taste; underneath the moist, sticky rind is a soft supple paste with a pale straw colour and a delicate earthy flavour.
It pairs well with white Alsace wines such as Riesling, Gewurztraminer or Pinot gris.
