This Pinot gris develops floral, dried fruit and jammy aromas. It is fresh all the while full bodied, boasting suppleness. It is a wine with an attractive golden colour. Golden yellow wine. Bright and limpid. A very open and expressive nose boasting ripened fruit: pear and cherry plum. It also develops subtle smoky notes bringing about complexity. All of these aromas are underscored by pleasant freshness. Frank and refined attack. This Pinot Gris is perfectly balanced, based upon remarkable freshness. It develops good amplitude, fat and a long and persistent finish. This wine is dominated by flavours of yellow fruit, and discreet smoky and dried fruit notes. It is an elegant and harmonious Pinot gris. Thanks to these qualities, this product was awarded a Gold Medal at the Pinot Gris of the world and the Price of Excellence at the Vinalies National in 2013.
