Pinot Grigio

French Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris generally produces a round and full-bodied wine, with moderate acidity, and a pleasant after-taste. The wines are often reminiscent of Chardonnay, with some of Chardonnay's slightly neutral fruity character. Sweet flowers, peaches, and some spice in the character are common in editions where the grapes have become properly ripe.

In Alsace, Pinot Gris often replaces red wine and is used (especially if developed) for white meat dishes such as chicken and pig, and also for goose liver.
