Sans sulfites ajoutés
Vin issu du terroir marno-limoneux "Altweg" voisin du Zellberg. Pinot noir travaillé en en raisin entier en oeuf béton.
Dégustation : la robe translucide – mais un peu trouble – est entre le vermillon et le tuilé. Le nez est fin, sur des notes florales, la pierre chauffée au soleil, la griotte confite, et une touche de volatile qui apporte de la fraîcheur. La bouche est ronde, ample, aérienne, déroulant une matière très fine, quasi impalpable, tonifiée et tendue par un fin perlant – et toujours cette (élégante) volatile qu'on perçoit en arrière-plan. L'aromatique est proche du nez, mêlant la griotte aux notes florales et fumées. La finale poursuit la tension de la bouche avec un peu plus de mordant dû au gaz carbonique, et un fruit plus intense et épicé. Et cette touche inimitable de terre humide après la pluie.
PS : en supprimant le gaz carbonique, on gagne en finesse et élégance, avec une bouche plus fluide, gracieuse, une finale plus classieuse. Mais il manque un "ptit quelque chose"...

What is an author wine?
This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.
An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.
This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.
As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
