Pinot Gris history

A famous and stubborn legend connects Pinot Gris with the Hungarian wine “Tokay”, but actually they don’t have anything in common. The origin of Pinot Gris is in fact Burgundian. It made its appearance in the 17th century there, and its local name is Pinot Beurot. It was more recently planted in Alsace.

Tasting of Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris is a wine of a great aromatic complexity. It often exalts smoked flavours, autumn leaves, mushrooms and dried fruits. It is round and unctuous.

Food and wine pairing

Pinot Gris is one of the rare white wines to be served with meats such as game in sauce. It also likes to accompany white meats, but in combination with “foie gras” it excells.

The vine

Pinot Gris is an early maturing grape. In spite of this it accepts botrytis and is often used to produce Late Harvest and “Sélection de Grains Nobles”. Generally, Pinot Gris is very much at ease on well-drained limestone soils.
