April 1, 2020 - Very fresh, with bracing acidity. With some air, the magical gringet texture and flavors emerge. This was delicious and did not taste 9 years old at all.
May 7, 2017 - PNP. Cork perfect. Nose is tight. There is a distinct cider note but maybe peach cider? Never had that but just what I would imagine. Swishing shows this same flavor with a chalkiness and acid that keep it light. Sipping shows richness but the acidity keeps it from being overwhelming. This is compelling wine.
June 8, 2016 - Ausgeprägte Cidre-Note, mineralisch, elegant.
February 14, 2016 - Light golden color. Pear and white flowers on the nose. Simply delicious - there is extract and depth of flavor but the impression is crisp. Serious wine that feels like a cross of Pinot Gris and muscadet. Different and delicious. (91)
November 4, 2015 - Nose is nutty, with pears and fallen apples (lactic rather than malic acid smells I guess). The nose nutty/pear features had me expecting a heavy dense mid palate, but instead, it was light as a feather, and almost effervescent Finish is light and refreshing. Not much acid in the finish, but doesn't need it with all the iightness. It gives the impression of a very low alcohol wine, and sure enough the bottle says 12%. Going back to the nose, it is like a cross between a white Rhône and a Normandy cider. Might be one of my first experiences with gringet, and certainly enjoyed this.
P.S. Did best with a Riedel Chablis glass.
March 27, 2015 - Like a sauvignon blanc without tropical notes. Grapefruit and flowers.
November 3, 2014 - Very nice, honey and floral notes, honey and melon on palate, want to investigate this grape in other contexts.
October 24, 2014 - Elegant. Pure. Low acidity. Very Good
September 22, 2014 - This wine has come a long way in the past year. Now integrated and no longer sharp, a lovely white flower and pear profile has emerged. Still crisp and refreshing - a delightful drink. (88)
September 16, 2014 - Very pure with floral, papaya and yellow apple notes. Light acidity and minerality.
