Natalie's Score: 89/100

Peach and wet stone aromas mingle on the nose in a hedonistic blend. Refreshing zesty acidity on the palate as an aperitif or with cold chicken sandwiches. The Cattin family has been making wine in Alsace since the 1850s. The lovely white wine finishes with green apple and baking spices. Perfect for Indian dishes, especially mild to medium spicy ones.

Pinot Gris food pairings: sweet red Thai curry, chicken à l’orange, rich cheese, seafood, light pastas.

Reviews and Ratings

Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Nice nose of honey and poached pears with mineral notes. Good acidity that calms down the residual sugar. This wine would be great with thai food, but also with a cheese plate and foie gras torchon. Very pleasant and a good quality price.
This off-dry French white wine from the northern region of Alsace won a Gold Medal at the 2013 Concours Général Agricole wine competition in Paris. A classic Alsatian Pinot Gris with spiced peach aromas and flavours. Pair with pate or foie gras. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
