Pinot Gris in Alsace, Pinot Grigio in Italy, this grape is actually a cousin of the Pinot Noir from Burgundy that is typically harvested riper, hence the sweeter notes.
Originally from Switzerland, the Frey family settled in Dambach-la-Ville at the beginning of the 18th century with the ambition of growing vine. Pioneer of Organic Agriculture and Biodynamics in Alsace, the Charles Frey family Estate has 14 hectares of property that can rely on remarkable terroirs such as Frauenberg, Victoriasberg, Grand Cru Frankstein or Blettig.
Semi-dry, round and delicate, Symbiose brings to light a great aromatic power while developing a strong fruit and flower character around an explosive bouquet of exotic aromas of lychee and mango.
A very nice match on blue cheeses and spicy starters!

1 review for Alsace AOC, Pinot Gris Symbiose, Domaine Charles Frey, 2020
Paul C –
On first opening this has a wonderful nose of meadow flowers and white stone fruit. The palate follows with an intresting blend of fruit, minerality and rather light acidity, which gives an overall feeling of being slightly off-dry. But it is very fresh nevertheless.
I found that after maybe 15 minutes a slightly bitter note emerged, particularly on the finish, but then again after an hour, and a bit warmer than the initial fridge temperature, that has moderated a lot.
Overall this is a quite complex and interesting wine. For me it works best on its own as an aperitif, or with very light dishes. I don’t see it having the power to match blue cheeses as suggested.
