expert reviews about
2015 Le Chat Pinot Gris
Campbell Mattinson (2013 Vintage) says
This is the first vintage of Le Chat Noir Pinot Gris and one of the very first pinot gris ever produced in the South of France. Until 2009, French Appellation laws restricted the planting of Pinot Gris to the Alsace region. Now planted in the South of France, Pinot Gris offers much promise.
The wine is clear and bright with a good straw-green hue. It offers some chalky, briny dryness but also serves up some red apple deliciousness. Spice, texture and fruit, always a winning combination. It’s not over-complicated but it’s not simple either. Value. 89 points.Campbell Mattinson
