Vintages Wine Panel: In 2009, this wine won Gold Medals at both the Concours Général Agricole in Paris and the Concours des Grands Vins de France in Mâcon. The Cattin family has been devoted to winemaking in the Alsace region since the 1850s. This Pinot Gris is an award winner, and deservedly so, with its beautifully balanced elements of peach, apple, poached pear, baking spice and pumpkin. Tangy, crisp and flavourful, with great intensity and length. My note : Petrol and peach in a hedonistic blend. White peach with refreshing zesty acidity. Perfect for picnics.

Pinot Gris food pairings: sweet red Thai curry, chicken à l’orange.

Jason Solanki reviewed this wine as follows:

Subdued orange, melon aromas. Definitely didn't expect the peach, apple, spiced pear, fennel/licorice, and oak flavours. Intense spicy start, finishes smooth. Delicious! Having this tonight with one of my favourite Indian dishes: spinach. Yum!
