A co-operative in the brilliant French region of Alsace bordering Germany. Plenty of stone fruits, grapey notes and a floral lift on the nose. The palate is fleshy, rounded and vibrant. Plenty of immediate enjoyment here.
Pinot Gris/Grigio– Gris and Grigio are in fact the same variety and both names mean grey in French and Italian respectively. Which is somewhat deceptive because the grapes can be almost blue when ripe. The great wines of Alsace and North Eastern Italy are often made from this variety. It is being widely adopted around the world too. AKA Grauburgunder.
