Pinot Grigio

An original rose:
berry and fruit
in the glass.

An international variety and worldy wine par excellence, Pinot Grigio is a seasoned traveller of the globe. We wanted ours to have a unique character also expresses by its color: The ‘œil de perdrix’ pale pink we managed to achieve is the result of our almost fanatic attention to maintaining the particular shade of color of the skin, keeping well away from the overstatement of the orange wines.

Our Pinot Grigio bursts with pronounced aromas of fruit, it has crisp acidity and natural freshness finishing with elegance.

An organic approach to vineyard management entails respecting the rules and regulations in place as well as adhering to an overall philosophy of safeguarding the ecosystem and its cycles. Respect not only for the life cycle of the vines but for the lunar cycles, upon which we set the calendar of our work. Indeed, the phases of the moon determine when and how we carry out the various processes in the vineyard and in the winery. We strictly harvest the grapes by hand when they are ripe to perfection to further select only the best clusters destined for natural vinification.

The entire production cycle requires considerable effort and pursuit for perfection, with utmost respect for nature and all its forms of life. The reward, however, is a healthy, clean environment with an interesting biodiversity, brought about by the many different plants, herbs, flowers, insects and wildlife that inhabit our vineyards, which naturally contribute to the sustainability and safeguard of the entire ecosystem.

The grapes are destemmed and undergo cold maceration using the Ganimede method. This process allows for a delicate extraction of the noble compounds of the grapes, using fermentation gases to constantly agitate the mass of marc and skins within the fermenter.

Dynamic skin maceration takes places in an environment that is saturated with carbon dioxide thus protected from any oxidation and bacterial proliferation. The macerated grapes undergo soft pressing and the free juice is run for wild yeast fermentation. The wine is then racked part into stainless steel tanks and part in 500-liter tonneau barrels. It spends a few months on the lees and then it is bottled.

Pervasive and layered, it offers generous freshness, with notes of peach and apricot, then wisteria and whites blooms. The pale œil de perdrix pink hue gives it an unexpected attractiveness that foretells its fullness to come. Refreshing and fruity, it surprises the palate with unexpected undergrowth and delicate inflorescences. Nice crispiness that leaves an elegant sapidity in the unquestionably brilliant finish.

This wine is rather versatile, from aperitif to proper dinner.Its graceful freshness makes it a good companion to starters, pastas and risottos in general. Excellent paired with seafood and fish dishes. Great to drink all year round, it is a show-stopper wine in the warm summer days.
