PALATE: harmonious mellow, sweetness, acidity and lively, evoking pear. Good length, underscored by impressive aromatic complexity.
Lively and full bodied, this Pinot gris works well with fish served with a sauce or smocked fish, lobster or scallops (sea scallops with hot chili pepper). It's a splendid match for foie gras., it can accompany white meat (chicken with pineapple). Delicious with cheese such as munster.
