Hailing from the Brand Grand Cru, this Pinot Gris is grown on granitic soils at 380 metres altitude. Gold yellow in colour, it has enticing aromas of violets and minerals with subtle peach hints. Aging on fine less has added a wonderful textural dimension to the palate, which cries out for food – cheeses or spicy would be an inspired choice. Grown according to the Ecocert certification, this is a ravishing Pinot Gris you don’t want to miss.
Spice and nuts. Big and rich, hazelnuts and mango syrup. Texture like heavy silk and clotted cream. Seductive, voluptuous wine that, although not sweet, has enough residual sugar to go with a light dessert, perhaps one made of bramley apples with a nutty granola.
