Les Vins Pirouettes Alsace 'Brutal de Jean Marc' 2018Regular price $32 Save $-32.00
Launched by Christian Binner just a few years back, Les Vins Pirouettes champions the growth of organic and biodynamic fruit across Alsace. With this project, growers are able to avoid selling their grapes to massive co-ops and instead put them towards the production of well-made natural wines. ‘Brutal de Jean Marc’ is produced from organic Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Riesling (40 years average age) rooted in clay and limestone. Fruit is hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented with native yeasts. 18 days of skin maceration adds a gorgeous pink hue to the wine, as well as a grippy texture on the palate. Aging is done for 11 months on the fine lees in traditional Alsatian foudre. No sulfur added.
