This white wine is called pinot beurot in Burgundy, malvoisie in Valais, formerly tokay in Alsace or pinot grigio in the south.
Rich, full-bodied and complex, the pinot gris is harvested very mature. It gives a dry wine of dark golden hue. This full, sparkling wine puts a wonderful finishing touch to a meal.
It is much appreciated with fish in sauce and provides a surprising accompaniment to aa blanquette of veal or a farm capon. It has no trouble blending with cheeses of character, even after a red wine.
Serving temperature: 8-10°C
