Domaine Durrmann Pinot Noir Nature
Grapes: Pinot Noir
The Durrmann family make wine from their old family house in the middle of Andlau, a beautiful village nestled on the first slopes of the Vosges mountains south-west of Strasbourg. The family are true eco warriors, only having electric cars and using solar energy for hot water and heating. Father André was among the first wave of organic winemakers in Alsace, converting in 1998, and son Yann has then taken this a step further applying a natural, minimal intervention approach in the cellar.
This is their elegant and lifted Pinot Noir made without sulphur. Crunchy red cherry and blackberry aromas abound with light herbal overtones and an earthy, mineral edge to the palate.
