Commentaire de dégustation :
94+ - Vinous Janvier 2019 : « Golden-tinged straw. Intense aromas and flavors of passion fruit, mushrooms and forest floor; like a hike in the forest on a drizzly day. Lovely, long and very clean, with refined yet very concentrated notes of tropical fruit and pear nectar on the long, suave, slightly smoky finish. Knockout Pinot Gris of superb depth complexity.» Ian d’Agata
