    Cuvée presentation

    The Hengst Grand Cru vineyards are situated on a 360 metre hillside, offering a composite marly limestone terroir. The soil composition is often compared to Chambertin in Burgundy; these conditions exalt the Pinot Gris which produces this cuvée. The fruit is matured in 100 year-old oak barrels or stainless steel vats, culminating in a wine with a beautiful burnished clarity and loads of fruit on the nose, including ripe white fruit accented by a hint of vanilla. A pure, unctuous mouthfeel leads to a lingering saline finish. This cuvée pairs perfectly with flavours of the sea, especially shellfish.
