Pinot Gris is the mysterious, grey sister in the Pinot family. She’s not as flamboyant as Blanc and not as popular as her cheerleading sis Noir. Gris reads from tomes of the great poets in the corners of bustling coffee bars not caring if she gets noticed but not shying away from conversation either. Gris has a high alcohol, deep earthy tones from the barrels and an overall darker fruit personality than most white wines. This gives a beautiful unraveling quality to the flavors. This is the type of wine that deserves to be consumed slowly and steadily with great introspection.
