The 1999 Pinot Gris Reserve has bracing acidity (2 points higher than normal), so expect this Pinot gris to open slowly, gain great structured complexity, and live an extremely long life. Currently (February 2001) it is tightly mute in the nose, with a clean and bracing palate of mineral and whiteness. Grapefruit, citrus, gooseberry, mineral, ginger descriptors can be associated. Great with food and great for aging and waiting.
