Breggo Pinot Gris Anderson Val 2011
External Reviews for Breggo Pinot Gris Anderson Val
This Pinot Gris comes from Anderson Valley, one of California’s coolest growing regions and one often promoted as “The Alsace of California.” That Alsatian influence is clearly evident in Breggo’s 2011 Pinot Gris, which has a palate-coating viscosity not often found in New World expressions of this variety. This full-bodied, lush wine is certainly not the light, refreshing Pinot you may be used to. Initial aromas are those of apple pie –– ripe Gala apples, clove, and perhaps even a touch of graham cracker. With air, more savory nuances of chicken stock, clay and chalk reveal themselves. A ripe, rich Pinot Gris; pair this with roast chicken or other dishes that might normally having you reaching for Chardonnay.
Shows great texture, both juicy and soft, with a wonderful core of pear, yellow apple, melon and nectarine. Complex and layered, this is an elegant expression, with a spicy finish. Drink now.
