Critical Acclaim

James Suckling:
Dry Red Wine A rich and powerful Pinot Noir from Alsace with melted tannins, with notes of cranberries, violets and lavender. This Pinot Noir comes from an exceptional terroir, the Hengst, it is to be tasted with grilled red meats, game, and cheeses. Exposed South, South-East extends to an altitude of 270 to 360 m, on a rather pronounced slope. The soil, essentially made up of Oligocene conglomerates and limestone marls, gives the wine a solid and very structured character. Grapes rigorously sorted, destemmed and placed in a maceration vat. The berries remain in contact with the juice during alcoholic fermentation in order to extract the tannins and coloring compounds from the wine. Pressing will take place after 2 to 3 weeks of maceration.

Tasting Note:
Vibrant and full bodied Pinot Noir from Alsace, which is certified organic and biodynamic. Aromas of lavender, cranberries, redcurrant and cinnamon on the nose. On the palate it is round and soft with notes of raspberries, cranberries, spice and hint of smokiness on the finish. Extremely food friendly wine perfect paired with lamb, pork or rich tomato based sauces.
