This is a noble wine that offers great substance, an admirable, lively roundness that tends toward a slightly sweet opulence, but always underpinned by delightful freshness. It is the balanced intensity that makes it so attractive.
Generally less intense, yet with great aromatic complexity, Pinot Gris often develops distinctive smoky notes: aromas of forest floor, burnt vine shoots, mushrooms, moss, dried fruits, apricot, honey, beeswax, and gingerbread. Given its inherent discretion, Pinot Gris benefits from decanting a few moments before being served, in order for its complexity to be fully appreciated.
