Colour: Golden yellow with good intensity.

Nose: Focused and beautifully intense with white fruits, quince and cooked apple aromas with a smoky hint. Aerating reveals cherries, plums and spices.

Palate: Rich, dense with hints of sweetness. Well balanced with lively quince, cooked apples and honey flavours followed by touches of smoke and hops and a good long finish.

Mainly produced in the Schimberg plot, which lies in the valley of Guebwiller, on volcanic subsoil, our Pinot Gris faces due south.

Hand-picked. Slowly pressed pneumatically. Static settling of the must. Temperature controlled fermentation from 1 to 4 months. Raised on fine lees for about 8 months.

Originally called Tokay d'Alsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, this grape variety is not related in any way to the Hungarian Tokaji which comes from the Furmint grape variety. It is actually a Burgundian pinot which has been found in Alsace since the 17th century. The name Pinot Gris is generally used from 2007.

Tall bottle may not fit in gift boxes.
