Dry Wine
Sweet Wine

This indicator represents the perceived style from the driest to the sweetest.  Sometimes two wines can have the same quantity of residual sugar but taste differently according to the grape used.  “A” is the driest like a Muscadet and “E” the sweetest like a Sauternes.

This grape used to be known as the Tokay of Alsace, then more recently the Tokay Pinot Gris. Faller makes some lovely refreshing wines.   Here, a powerfully grapey, almost sweet smelling, aroma precedes a dry flavour, creating an alluring paradox. Although possibly a little too powerful for fish or shellfish, this wine will marry perfectly with exotic food or even, foie gras.
