Breggo Cellars Anderson Valley Pinot Gris 2012

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose was fresh with slight grassy notes followed by sweet pear, green melon, crushed raw almond, and a hint of moist undergrowth. On the palate it was full-bodied with a moderate amount of sweetness yet beautifully balanced and fresh. White fruits, sweet apple, a spritz of lime, and minerals filled the senses with a note of honey that lasted into the long refreshing finish. (91 points)

Consumers love Pinot Gris as evidenced by the phenomenal Pinot Grigio sales that Italy enjoys in this country. However check out Breggo s 2009 Pinot Gris. There are just under 1 000 cases which limits its availability but this is a knock-out wine. Crisp steely Granny Smith apple skin notes intermixed with hints of orange and citrus jump from the glass of this light yet intense relatively dry fresh wine. It is medium-bodied totally endearing and best drunk over the next year. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Breggo is a new label in Anderson Valley, sourcing fruit exclusively from the AVA and making the wine in the valley as well. The debut whites are an encouraging sign – not just because they’re good but because they’re not Chardonnay, Riesling or Gewurztraminer. Not that I don’t like those grapes in Anderson Valley – indeed I do. But other grapes are hiding up in the hillsides and in back corners of the benchlands, and, rather than see them disappear into generically labeled Alsatian-style blends, I’d like to drink them for what they are: individual expressions of the valley’s character.Most Pinot Gris (or Grigio) I taste is initially interesting and then gets less interesting as the wine gets warmer or my palate gets more of it. Not here. The bright grapefruity aromas and initial flavors come with refreshing acidity, giving the wine a grip on your palate that's well integrated with the flavor and staying power of the wine. This has some unmistakable sweetness from residual sugar, which hardcore Pinot Gris fans might not favor, but the wine finishes dry in the mouth without astringency or cloying – in other words, clean as a happy, white-wine-drinking whistle.
