The super-lux face of Pinot Grigio. Pinot Gris is a richer & fuller style using the same grape but only 1 stop away.

White
Vintage: 2011

Pinot Gris is a great wine once you discover it… It is like the older sister to Pinot Grigio, it has a bit more to say & is more full of itself. It usually has a little spice to it & is a nice autumn/winter wine to enjoy with food, it has enough flavour, fruit & texture to stand up to oily fish, richer white meats & fragrant aromatic spiced foods. This is a slightly aged wine which means it’s lot a little bit of zing for some more texture and spice. It feels a bit heavier than a lot of crisp white wines, and feels a bit sweeter, so it’s less of a sipper and more of a wine to go with dinner.

The Kuehn family have been making wines in Alsace for about 300 years so they’ve definitely mastered the art. Their cellars are 7 m under the road so were air-raid shelters in the war, so the wines are well protected!

Alsace in Northern France is the original home to these kind of aromatic grapes such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer & Pinot Gris but we also see some fantastic clean crisp examples from the New World like Marlborough in New Zealand.
