Vignoble de Rêveur, Pierres Sauvages Sec 2013, Alsace, France
Tasting Note: An Alsacian white blend that delivers.
Lemon in color, this wine has a nose of green fruit.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied white blend has medium-intensity, ripe fruit flavors that are in perfect balance.
Bottle Note: Like a photographer capturing the moment, the vine here finds the liberty to transcribe the true beauty of the farmer’s devotion. “Vibrations” is the expression of this respect for nature, the fruit of an old vineyard planted by my ancestor “the dreamer,” a secretive, misanthrope, wizard-like character. Here, the stony Quaternary sediments reinforce the mineral, fine, young and energetic expression in the wine. No enological correction, natural yeasts, ageing for one year on lees. 50% pinot blanc, 25% pinot gris, 25% pinot noir.
