Today we are going to review a single varietal pinot grigio wine from Bahu village that is situated in the Codru region of MoldovaPinot Grigio 2020 by Bahu Winery. Pinot Grigio is famous for its refreshing citrusy aroma and zesty acidity and is enjoying a wave of popularity perhaps greater than it has ever known. Technically speaking, pinot grigio and pinot gris are the two names of the same variety, yet stylistically some winemakers and connoisseurs use the italian name to highlight the crisp style (usually totally dry with brilliant acidity) and the french name to underline the creamy (sometimes a bit off-dry with a smooth and unctuous body) of winemaking. This particular whine has a pinkish-ivory hue, because pinot gris is a grape variety that has a pink-grey skin color and in some cases the must gets that slightly pink shade after getting in contact with the grape skins during the pressing process or during maceration ,if the winemakers decides so. That said, without further ado, let’s move on straight to our tasting results.

96x96This is definitely a nice wine of Moldova and with a total of 89.5 points scored, this wine is right there, among the best wines we’ve rated so far. Check our complete database on the wine rating page, where you can find all the wines that we have tasted and reviewed or go to the about us page and find out more about our exquisite rating system.

Verdict: this is a pinot grigio wine that is right there, at the peak of its form. It feels austere, rough, but crisp and fresh on the mouthfeel, with elevated acidity, overwhelming alcohol warmth and a seedy-green finale – a wine that lacks harmony and structure on the palate. With a fruity-herbal profile on the nose, the wine delivers citrus & green fruits in the foreground, supported by some very subtle herbaceous notes in the background. Overall this is a fresh, angular and slightly rough pinot gris wine, with a nuanced bitter-seedy mouthfeel (mostly due to its pronounced alcohol level). Drink it today or in the next 3 to 6 months.
