Bunches of pinot noir are fermented in the juice of pinot gris and riesling, all from blue schist from the lieu-dit Schiefferberg. Delicious acidity, refreshing wine without additives and not filtered. An absolute cracker that is now becoming a yearly favourite at Cave each time it gets released. Somewhere between a dark rose and a light red, serve slightly chilled. No SO2!
Notes on the producer
Since taking over the family winery at the age of 18, Bernard Bohn has crafted an individually unique style of wines on the only outcrop of schist terroir in Alsace. The Bohn family members have been winegrowers for well over three centuries in Reichsfeld, a small village at the far end of the valley, where until recently, the local Alsatian dialect was still more common than French. Today, Bernard and his son Arthur farm just over 9 hectares and go beyond organic agriculture to incorporate uncommon techniques, such as completely abandoning vineyard plowing and allowing cover crops to coexist to create balance in the vines.
