Originally named Tokay d'Alsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, this type of vines is not related to the Hungarian Tokaji which comes from the Furmint type of vine. In reality it is a pinot from Burgundy that became known in Alsace from the 17th century. The name Pinot Gris is generalized since 2007.
Primarily produced in the named locality of Schimberg situated in the valley of Guebwiller, on a volcanic subsoil, our Pinot Gris benefits from a full South exposure.

Winery Tasting Notes
In a golden yellow colour with hints of green
The Pinot Gris offers a bouquet of ripe fruit and fruit compote, fully in harmony with notes of apricot and honey of flowers.
On the palate the wine is soft, blended and fleshy with a very slight roundness. The finish is vinous and fresh, well-balanced and pure.
A wine that is quite ready to taste, which will mature well over the next four to five years.
Meat terrine and pâté, poultry. Serve at a temperature of 12°.
