  • Air de famille – A family resemblance

    22,00

    A 100% natural pinot noir, just as we have been doing for 10 years. This v2017 intage is delicious, fruity, with a beautiful ruby color. It looks like the previous vintages, and there is a family similarity but with peculiarities: we used a small wood press and much more to discover…

  • Langue ô chat… a riddle

    28,00

    A riddle for you. .. This white wine is composed of three grape varieties. Taste, imagine, and tell us what they are. There is a vivacity and tension but also body and a long finish. Granite gives it complexity and elegance.

  • Il y a de l’or…SOLD OUT

    23,00

    An orange wine is amazing! The fermentation has been made with whole grapes leaving the juice in contact with the skins and one gets this beautiful couleur…and this very special touch in the mouth ! 2017 is sold out but 2018 is coming, book it now !

  • Et pourquoi pas ? why not ?

    31,00

    Muscat and sylvaner together? et pourquoi pas, why not ? It is our outlaw cuvée because both grapes had late harvest characteristics but in Alsace sylvaner late harvest is not allowed. However the effect is amazing: a whirl of curves and fine acidity. For wine lovers wanting something exceptional and unexpected.

  • Last dance

    35,00

    It was the last dance for this old lady, a 70 year old gewurztraminer plot and this dance was amazing , more than mature, botrytised, concentrated. Often not more than one grape here and there. And we bottled 250 bottles for nearly 25 years…  We removed the stocks and replanted 2 years later with pinot noir…

  • Quand le chat n’est pas là

    31,00

    “Quand le chat n’est pas là les souris dansent” (when the cat is not there, the mice will dance…). The fermentation of this pinot gris went on and on but we never gave up hope, and we were rewarded!

Tasting notes RVF for the PASSAGE range of wines, vintage 2016
These wines are from plots we transferred to our friends after this harvest. Most of the wines are special cuvées, late harvest type, pressed by feet / hand, and/or unusual vinifications. They are also precious — we  have only around 300 bottles of each. Each wine name has a story: Pourquoi Pas, Quand le Chat N’est Pas Là, Last Dance, and Langue Ô Chat. Notes are 14,5 to 15,5 with a special mention for the Pinot Noir LIBRE: “a radiant wine, vinified from entire grapes; we were delighted by the notes of cherry and it’s elegant woody notes.”

 

Biodynamic wines of Alsace in the spotlight
A large article about Alsace, the French wine region with a long and serious tradition of biodynamic wine making. The RVF writes “the most biodynamic vineyards in Europe!” A few of the 50 estates are called “Les domaines NATURE” by RVF. They often started with organic growing, then biodynamic but this was not enough! Their enemy is SO2. Vignoble KLUR is among the 8 natural winemakers spotlighted.
