 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. FA clean, buttery nose that reveals plenty of nuances of ripe yellow fruit and spice. The variety of aromas on the palate reveals the freshness rooted in the vineyard, a lot of melon, pear and gentle citrus notes, but also with a lot of spice and a lovely hint of chamomile. The wine is full-bodied, but not heavy. A beautiful, soft texture and fine, gentle length.
