Ceci N’est Pas Un Vin de France


Chardonnay from a parcel of fifty year old vines planted over granite in Turckheim. The grapes were mostly pressed directly, with just a touch being macerated, and after pressing the wine was aged for a year in old Alsatian foudres. Pale straw yellow in the glass, this hums with ripe stone fruits and gentle scents of salt, nuts, yeast and spice, whilst the palate displays a pleasant density and a long, salty finish. Great now, this should evolve beautifully over the coming years.
