Color: Pinot Gris has a lovely yellow-gold or even amber colour.
Nose: Generally less intense, yet with great aromatic complexity, Pinot Gris often develops distinctive smoky notes: aromas of forest floor, burnt vine shoots, mushrooms, moss, dried fruits, apricot, honey, beeswax, and gingerbread. Given its inherent discretion, Pinot Gris benefits from decanting a few moments before being served, in order for its complexity to be fully appreciated.
Taste: This is a noble wine that offers great substance, an admirable, lively roundness that tends toward a slightly sweet opulence, but always underpinned by delightful freshness. It is the balanced intensity that makes it so attractive.
Food Pairing: Pinot Gris is a wine whose strong personality pairs with richly flavoured dishes, and is the Alsacewhite wine that most successfully accompanies dishes most often intended for red wines. Game, veal, pork and poultry, particularly when served with rich sauces, roasts, kidneys, mushrooms, risotto, polenta, etc. make this an ideal autumn pairing wine. In Alsace, it is the perfect match to the regional pork and potato speciality Baeckeoffe. Because of its balance between richness and crisp freshness, it is delicious with both sweet and sour flavour combinations. Foie gras, served in a variety of ways, delights in its presence. Its many qualities also make Pinot Gris a delicious aperitif wine.
