2016 AOC Alsace 'Fleurs Macération'
80% Pinot Gris and 20% Pinot Noir from a certified biodynamic lieu-dit called Les Coteaux du Kefferberg. 15 days maceration, then 8 months élevage in stainless steel tanks. Zero SO2.
Beautiful nose – this just reminds me of a really good Poulsard – very clean, not funky – bright aromas of wild strawberries. Stone fruits and strawberries on the palate. Great balance, really long. This is a soft, easy going drink that is so simple yet enjoyable, the same way in that a light Poulsard is! Nice gentle musky aromas. The palate is really alive too. Great length. Gentle and yummy! Such a good light red for spring and summer. I like this slightly chilled, but not too cold as you lose some of the aromas. But the chill gives it a nice freshness.
