Referred to as Grauer Tokayer before 1970, Pinot Gris was successively named Tokay Gris, then Tokay d’Alsace, followed by Tokay Pinot Gris, and finally, as of April 1, 2007, Pinot Gris.
Pinot Gris has a lovely yellow-gold or even amber colour. Pinot Gris often develops distinctive smoky notes : aromas of forest floor, burnt vine shoots, mushrooms, moss, dried fruits, apricot, honey, beeswax, and gingerbread. This is a noble wine that offers great substance, an admirable, lively roundness that tends toward a slightly sweet opulence, but always underpinned by delightful freshness.
