The Pinot Gris color is a golden yellow with light reflections of a great intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth and concentration. The nose is marked, pleasant, distinguished and gives out a dominant of earthly scents. A hint of fruitiness is also detected, with flavors of quince, white flesh fruits, apple and a hint of lemon. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample, tender, and a little richness can be perceived. The alcoholic base is well balanced. One evolves on a full-bodied medium with a sharp vivacity. The candied range of flavors revolves around fruits, quince, oven-baked apple, as well as a smoky character. A slight bitterness can be detected. The finish offers a moderate length and a marked vivacity.
This thrives on balance and freshness, its clean, primary flavors of pear, kiwi and citrus feeling silky and clear. It's accented by a stony complexity that buttresses the fruit flavors, adding to the wine's energy and finesse.
Delicate flavors of white peach, clementine and spice are shy today, but they sit on a solid framework of nervy acidity. A pleasant fleur de sel note runs through the wine, leading to the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2017. 1,200 cases imported.
