Pinot Noir Vieilles Vignes 2020

Gourmand and fruity!

Story

The vintage
2020 will be remembered as a year filled with emotion, career choices, solidarity, and privileged time with family.
The warm Spring, dry summer and rainy month of August made the grapes grow and ripen quickly. Harvest started August 22nd, the most precocious harvest in the history of the Alsace wine region. Our objectives were met as we preserved ripe, rich acidities, fine aromas, and balanced sugar/ alcohol levels. Consequently, our 2020 vintage will be harmonious, aromatic with well-structured acidities.
