Vintage tasted 2009 Grapes Pinot Gris

Overview The Lurtons are not exactly newcomers to wine: André and Lucien Lurton are some of the biggest players in Bordeaux, with holdings in the ultra-prestigious châteaux of D’Yquem and Cheval Blanc. André’s son, François, decided to go his own way and purchase a number of wineries throughout the world; with this bottle he proves that he doesn’t need to replicate the flash of his parents’ offerings. This Pinot Gris is a perfect summer wine, the kind that evoked memories of past picnics in many of our blind tasters.

Nose A citrus nose of lemons and oranges is exactly what we crave in the heat.

Mouth It’s almost prickly, enough to remind our blind tasters of a Vinho Verde—another great picnic wine.
