2011 Bouchaine Estate Pinot Gris
New Release!Pinot Gris is known for its distinctly crisp and bright flavors, and this one, from our cool and fog-covered Carneros Estate, shows citrus, apple, and nectarine flavors balanced by notable minerality.
Pinot Gris, the lightly-pigmented cousin of Pinot Noir, is noted for an ever-so-slight grip that one notices between the wine and its aftertaste, along with a "resinous" note (think forest, or the background note in wild blueberries. This note in the 2011 vintage resonates almost audibly with rosemary. Try it with roast chicken with a generous rosemary rub.
