The Maison Lucien Albrecht’s origins can be traced back to 1698, when Balthazar Albrecht settles in Orschwihr, to the south of Colmar (Haut-Rhin – Alsace), a small Alsatian village in an ideal location for growing vines. Eight generations continue to work the soils of this unique terroir with the same tenacity and passion, creating the reputation and authentic character of Alsace wines which are enjoyed and renowned worldwide.
Handed down from father to son, the experience acquired by generations of these nature lovers allows this family to adapt its wine-growing and wine-making methods gradually from year to year, in order to get the very best out of this one-of-a-kind terroir. This gradually brings out all the finesse of Lucien Albrecht wines which, thanks to the argilo-calcareous soils, are characterised by their unique aromatic structure and freshness.
The 2018 Cuvée Romanus Pinot Gris is fruit forward and delicious, with notes of white peach, apricot, and almond that are a perfect match to pork dishes and spicy Indian curries.
