Air de famille – A family resemblance
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…
AIR DE FAMILLE, family resemblance?
– Why this name? This wine is in the family tradition of our Pinot Noir, all without filtration or added sulfites for the past 10 years but… it has something more: the entire grapes were fermented, and we pressed them by hand in a small wood press after a not too long fermentation. And we also added the grapes that grow up into the trees that grow on the edge of our garden…. picked up with a ladder!
– Its history: a wine from the limestone clay soil of the Hinterburg, which is located in the area of the geological fracture of the Piedmont Vosges. Aging in Barriques (2 to 3 years old). Bottled in July 2018 without filtration and Schweffel addition.
