    Description

    Pinot Gris 1954
    Ai-Danil, Massandra
    Bottle (6)
    The 1954 Pinot Gris exhibits a change of profile, suggesting these wines get more mature and more unique with age, in a very good way. More pickle, more tea, more meat, less fruit and maybe less complexity in this vintage. This is still a very attractive bouquet but not as dense or profound. The palate is also more tame and different in profile with one singular but beautiful note of sweet Sauternes fruit. The alcohol is not obtrusive and the balance is well-etched with healthy flavors throughout, but it lacks the complexity and class of other vintages of Ai-Danil Pinot Gris. Very long, enjoyable finish. (93pts FCM)
