All about Alsace Pinot Gris

Tasting


    Sight: Pinot Gris has a beautiful golden yellow or even amber colour.
    The Nose: Generally not very intense, but with great aromatic complexity, Pinot Gris often develops typical smoky notes: aromas of undergrowth, burnt vine shoots, moss, mushrooms, dried fruit, apricot, honey, beeswax, gingerbread. Being quite secretive by nature, Pinot Gris benefits from being decanted for a few moments before being served to fully appreciate its complexity.
    Taste: This is a wine full of nobility with a lot of substance, an admirable roundness that sometimes goes as far as a slightly mellow opulence, but always supported by a beautiful freshness. It is the balance of its power that makes it so attractive.


Gastronomy

Pinot Gris is a wine with a strong personality that goes well with richly flavoured dishes. It is the Alsatian white wine that goes best with dishes usually reserved for red wines.

Game, marinated or not, veal, pork, poultry, especially accompanied by sauces with strong flavours, roasts, kidneys, risottos, mushrooms, cereals (polenta, wheat or corn cakes...), make it the wine for autumn dishes. In Alsace, it also accompanies the famous baeckeoffe.
