Rosé d'Alsace 2019

Perfect terrace wine!

Story

The vintage
In 2019, our harvesters, bins, and tractors found their way to the fields to begin picking Crémant grapes on the 5th of September. The AOC Alsace harvest began on the 12th of September. August rains (45 mm in 3 days!) were a blessing and the grapes ripened perfectly while keeping a lovely rich acidity.
Using slow, easy fermentations kept the complexity and character of each terroir. The quality of the 2019 wines is top-notch.
Terroir
calcareous clay soil
Vinification
Harvested at perfect ripeness, our destemmed Pinot Noir grapes are cold macerated briefly. As with our white wines, we keep only the heart of each press to preserve the fruity aromas. The fermentation continues in stainless steel tanks until bottling in the Springtime.
