The weather patterns were unusual yet resulted in a fine high-quality crop in most locations. The winter was extremely cold, and total rainfall for January through July was more than twice the normal amount. This replenished the soil moisture while the vines growth cycle was largely undisturbed. The summer months brought more stable, warm and dry conditions. Harvest proceeded over a two-month period, which allowed a precise approach to each terroir.
Typical pinot gris opulence tempered by limestone (calcaire) architecture on the palate. This is medium-bodied and fairly dry, with notes of ripe citrus fruit, damp earth and tangy acidity.
Quite versatile and pairs well with seafood as well as white meats, curries, roasted vegetables or sausages & cured meats.
