This 100% Grenache Gris from Catalan France is a testament to how well this variety does close to its ancestral Spanish homeland. This is a bewitching wine, with waxy opulence and elegant finesse rarely found in wines made from Grenache Gris. Ripe, juicy pear with eucalyptus and salty notes are woven together with luxurious, smooth texture and a long finish. Satiating and complex, it is also perfect for seafood, especially crab and lobster. I also love wines like this as an aperitif, since the lower acidity is easier on an empty stomach.
The Gris Gris is grown on vineyards set atop a cliff overlooking the Mediterrenean Sea, and it is made in concrete egg with only a small sulfur addition.
Mireille and Pierre Mann both were raised by winemaking families in Alsace and they were running a successful restaurant there before moving to the Roussillon. They were driven by what they called a ‘madness, a passion’ to start over, return to the basics, and seek out new challenges. JK
