Description

 Quite opulent on the nose with a hint of butter and ripe yellow fruit, notes of flint give a defining backbone. Flattering on the palate, with apricots and honeysuckle, ripe melon and stone fruit, accompanied by herbal and salty-mineral notes. An excellent accompaniment at the table and, thanks to the volcanic soil of the vineyard, a surprising Pinot Gris. Although smoky on the finish, this characteristic does not dominate – an elegant but not reserved wine.
