Tasting

Off-dry and rich, this Pinot Gris develops elegant notes of underwood and minerality. On the palate it shows complexity with an interesting expression around smokiness and ripe fruit. The final is long with a surprising refreshing sensation.

Food matching

It is excellent with "Foie Gras", exotic food, as an aperitif or with smoked dry fish, cheese, dry/smoked ham, a fruity dessert like a Pear Tie, a fresh fruit salad…
