Winemaker's Notes

The 2010 vintage was #39 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

The wine is a light yellow with yellow straw reflections. The disk is bright and limpid. The nose is open with autumn fruit flavors (quince, baked apples). Airing reveals honeyed and crystallized notes. The onset in the mouth is ample but remains fresh. In the middle mouth, a little bit of roundness delicately supported by the acidity of the wine is present.

Style: Fruity & Smooth
This Pinot Gris is the reason France excels in winemaking. It is smooth yet with a huge flavor of pear crisp apple and masked acidity. Unbelievable for a wine with an alcohol content above 12% . There is no harsh acrid taste and no bitter note. A definite buy (but not at the listed price).

Style: Rich & Creamy
This Pinot Gris is dark yellow in color, medium aroma, great tannins for a smooth taste that stays on the pallet with a full body like flavor which is rich and creamy.

Beautifully crisp Pinot that we've enjoyed all Summer. Very light on the tannins, and a little on the dry side. I think this is one of the better under-rated wines, that everyone will like.
