This wine is floral and fruity on the nose: notes of rose, lychee, lemon and grapefruit mingle with a touch of white pepper ginger. On the palate, the wine is smooth and fresh, and shows raspberry notes on the finish.
Serve chilled (10°C/12°C), as an aperitif, with shellfish, tapas or marinated salmon.
Suggestion : Pinot Gris, perfect to drink with oysters !
Pinot Gris is mostly plated in the Vosges region. It is also found further to the south, between Nîmes and Narbonne, where it has recently been planted in small quantities. Our Pinot Gris comes from two different terroirs:
- the Côte de Thongue in the Hérault region where the grapes give a fat, opulent character to the wine,
- a particularly unique terroir: the dried lake in the village of Marseillette in the Aude.
The grapes are harvested late at night when the temperature is cooler. As the Pinot Gris is a varietal with a coloured skin, a quick, very light pressing is carried out to obtain a clear juice. Low temperature vinification. Fast racking after alcoholic fermentation.
