Pinot La Douve

White wine

The Pinot la Douve is made of Pinot Gris, Pinot Auxerrois and Chardonnay. The alcohol percentage is 12%.

This wine is an assembly of Pinot varieties or hybrids. The name La Douve is derived from the Douve Valley next to our vineyards, where the Douve has its source.

A fresh, aromatic and elegant wine with length and tension. It has a broad potential since it can be served as a great aperitif or with fish or poultry.
