The gently macerated Pinot Gris is onion-pink in color with a more intense copper edge. On the nose, we sense delicate floral-fruity aromas (yellow fruits and citrus fruits) complemented by the scents of fresh raspberries and plums. The aromas of ripe pears also sneak up into our noses. The taste of the wine is pleasant, fruity, and elegant freshness.
It is excellent with substantial fish dishes and slightly spicy meat dishes (steak tartare). We suggest a crab skewer with rosemary and bacon.
