This dry Pinot Gris is about as far removed as you can get from neutral Pinot Grigio. Complex and ripe, the nose suggests fresh green fruit and herbs while the palate is altogether more soft and full-bodied, with ripe peach, red apple and hints of white pepper on the finish. Rich and silky, this is a wine that would benefit from decanting before serving to let the genie out of the bottle. We have it on good authority (ie the producer) that this is a great match for roast white meats and offal.

Buy this if...you want to experience Pinot Gris at full power.

Voluptous, peachy Pinot Gris with a tongue-tingling finish.

The Producer

The small, family-run estate of Domaine Michel Fonné can be found in the commune of Bennwihr, just north of Colmar. Twelve hectares of vineyard, including the Grand Cru Marckrain, are cultivated with all seven Alsatian varietals. More than 80% of the total production is now exported around the world.

The Winemaker

Owner and winemaker Michel Fonné qualified as a winemaker from Dijon and got hands on experience in Champagne and in the Alexander Valley in California. He returned in 1989 to take over the reins of his uncle René Barth’s estate.

The Region

Acting as a natural barrier against bad weather, the Vosges Mountains have a starring role in the success story of Alsatian wines. The east facing slopes are sunny warm and perfect for grape growing, with very low rainfall for such a northerly region.

Fruity Roast Pork

Succulent roast pork with a rich fruity sauce needs a wine with ripe, generous fruit and crisp, mineral acidity to balance out the sweetness of the sauce. We'd go for a rich complex white such as Pinot Gris with enough weight to take on the meat and fruit combination.

Chicken with Almonds

This classic French recipe works beautifully with medium-bodied, rich whites which are just off dry - head for floral, nutty tones in the wines - try lightly oaked Chardonnay or full bodied Pinot Gris.

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Match the delicate scallops and smoky bacon with a rich, structured white - the fruitiness of Pinot Gris will contrast nicely with the salty flavours in the bacon.
