Originally named Tokay d’Alsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, this type of vine 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.

Winemaker notes

The robe is light yellow with green reflections of medium intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is marked, pleasant, a bit short. We perceive a complex dominant of fruity scents, apple, honey and lovage. The airing enhances these scents and reveals quince, hop, button mushrooms and a slight smokiness. A bit retained, the nose shows sophistication. It needs time to express itself. Patience… The onset in the mouth is moderately ample, round and heady. The wine evolves on a medium of marked liveliness, with a slight sparkling note. We find the same aromas as on the nose, dominated by autumn fruits (quince, apple, Mirabelle plum), but also hop, honey, button mushrooms, slightly smoked. We perceive a hint of bitterness. The finish has a good length, 6-7 caudalies, a strict liveliness and a persistent bitterness. This vigorous wine with sophisticated aromas has a nice and delicious structure. A real success !


James Suckling 92: Very vibrant with a wide spectrum of garden herb aromas plus all the shades of apple and crisp pear. Exciting interplay of ripeness and very crisp acidity on the medium- to full-bodied palate. Very zesty finish with pronounced minerality. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast 91: Talk about typicity. This wine is exactly what you want from an Alsace Pinot Gris. The nose is juicy apple, slate, steel and white blossoms. On the palate, this wine is lively with acidity, but there's an apple-pie softness and weight to it. Savory notes of fines herbes and mild hard cheese provide balance into a lingering saline finish. Full of culinary goodness, this is a wine to pair with just about any vegetable, fish or poultry dish.
