Tokay Pinot Gris W.Gisselbrecht 2004

Tokay or Tocai is a wine type made from the Furmint grape which grows in Hungary and produces the famed Tokay Aszu. However, the people who thought they were bring back this traditionally sweet grapeback to Alsace, France 500 years ago, it turned out that is wasnt Tokay at all, but Pinot Grigio (or Gris in French), and the named later changed to a mix of the two- Tokay Pinot Grigio. This white is normally a robust, strong smelling wine made to be had with dinner. And, in fact this bottle by Vitners W. Gisselbrecht has intense and complex aromas, in particular floreal, honey, roasted almonds and spices. It can almost seem fatty or oily in the glass and when drunk, but it does give you a warm feeling almost christmas like. Because of this and its great persistance it can be served with heavy dishes like fois gras of poultry roasts. I would really recommend this delicious wine to go with your holiday dinner or party.
Vote 85/100

Tokay è un vino fatto con l'uva Furmint proveninte dall'Ungheria durante un assedio francese alla fortezza Tokaj da parte del generale Lazare de Schwendi uscendo vincitore si portò con se oltre quattromila barili di vino per l'appunto Tokay; piacendogli tanto si portò via anche le talee in modo da coltivarlo in patria . Purtroppo si sbagliò e portò con se quelle del Pinot Grigio invece di quelle del Furmint. Questa bottiglia infatti riporta sull'etichetta la specifica Tokay Pinot Gris. Il vino si presenta con un giallo paglierino pieno e consistente; la sua complessità si esprime nel floreale variando poi nel miele d'acacia e nelle mandorle tostate. Grasso in bocca, cremoso ma ben equilibrato dalla freschezza e dalla sapidità. Ottimo per le feste di Natale da abbinare magari ad uno fois gras. Bene il rapporto qualità prezzo!!
