This white wine is called Pinot Beurot in Burgundy, Malvoisie in Valais, formerly Tokay in Alsace or Pinot Grigio in the south.
Rich, full-bodied and complex, Chateau d’Auvernier Pinot Gris is harvested very mature. It gives a dry wine of dark golden hue.
It is much appreciated with fish in sauce and provides a surprising accompaniment to a blanquette of veal or a farm capon. It has no trouble blending with cheeses of character, even after a red wine.
