Grolleau Gris

Campbell Lane

Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2015

Pale lemon in color.

Light nose of citrus, green apples, lemons, light white flowers, minerals and light petrol that faded away after 20 minutes of air time.

Medium in body with medium acidity. Refreshing when properly chilled.

Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, green apples, lemons, limes, spices, light earth, minerals and white pepper.

Long tangy finish that I really loved.

This 6 year old Pinot Gris from Oregon is delicious. Nicely balanced with a touch of RS.

Easy drinking and tasty. Good by itself as a sipping wine, and seems to age very nicely with nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

Loved the complexity on this 6 year old. Spicy, tasty and interesting.

I had a few vintages of this Pinot Gris, and it does get better the older it gets, yet still very fresh and inviting.

So delicious right now, and feels like it's peaking, but it will be nice to revisit it in a couple years to see how it evolves.

I had it all by itself by the pool.

92 points.

13.1% alcohol by volume.

Maan Saab said its fruity and he likes this more than other of this kind, its dry, his top lips are dry, he described this drink like "applying moisturiser on his lips" . I guess Maan Saab is all about his lips — 3 days ago

Great to see skins getting in the game in the Languedoc.

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Alsace Pinot Gris 2019

Mid yellow in colour. Aromas of yellow flowers and honey. The palate is luscious with pear and ripe apple - good concentration with medium plus intensity and low acid. Finishes dry. First of 6 recently bought. Also excellent value/QPR. — 8 days ago

@Scott Rose It’s a lovely Gris isn’t Scott. I also bought 6 of their Pinot Blanc from the 2019 vintage. Yet to try. Both good value.

Lucky ducky. I rarely see them repped/available here in San Diego, CA. Can taste the Pinot Blanc now along with the (non-dessert styled) Muscat and various regular/late harvest Gewürz and Ries offerings. So least in California.

Grrr...been in a Bordeaux mood lately but was really really missing DZH. Your post helped/didn't help. Need to divert some juice acquisition energy into DZH procuring. Especially their lower-end stuff. Such tremendous value.


Graupert Pinot Gris 2019

A beautiful showcase of Pinot Gris grape with a nice orange hue from the skin contact. Absolutely delish and not too sweet. Slightly acidic and lingering finish. Lovely. — 3 days ago

Saranty imports Stamford. 11% abv. Berries and a hint of sweetness. Dry. Delicate and little more body than provable rose. Really like this rose. Gamay and Grolleau. 50:50. — 18 days ago

Decidedly off-dry, showing more balance on the second night. Definitely needs the right food pairing to really shine. — 2 days ago

Mount Brown

Estates North Canterbury Pinot Gris 2020

"It's immediately appealing on the nose showing apricot, poached pear, rockmelon and lemon zest aromas. The palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and richly textured mouthfeel, beautifully balanced by refreshing acidity, offering excellent drinking." Basically if you can find a wine $23.00 better than this….bravo and let me know please. Lols — 8 days ago

Alder Yarrow

Hard to get your hands on a bottle of this wine, but if you’re a fan of orange wines it might be worth a search for its yellow plum, rainier cherry, citrus peel, tangy yogurt, and sarsaparilla brightness. A blend of 72% Riesling, 10% Gewürztraminer, 10% Pinot Gris, and 8% Muscat fermented on the skins for 14 days aged for 7 months in neutral barrels and bottled with no added sulphur. — 13 days ago
