Pinot Noir Weid

GENERAL INFORMATION

Alsace Pinot Noir are often light fruity red wines with pleasant aromas of cherry and raspberry. However, with low yields, great maturities, beautiful color, with a longer fermentation, they are sometimes aged in oak barrels, producing well-built wines, with aromas of ripe cherries and leather.

WINE & FOOD PAIRINGS

The Pinot Noir WEID fits perfectly with “boeuf bourguignon”, roast chicken with potatoes and veal filet mignon with mustard sauce.

VINTAGE 2015

A very mild spring followed by high temperatures in June and July, with episodes of severe drought accompanied by stormy passage allowed a vintage with a perfect health status of the grapes. 2015 devoted the talents of experienced balancing actors: the management of alcohol balance / residual sugars / acids needed to be very precise.

TASTING NOTES

Beautiful black cherry color, with hints of garnet.  Intense nose with notes of leather, smoke and cherry alcohol. On the palate the attack is clear, structured and silky tannins, persistence on empyreumatic notes.

Temperature of service: ambiant

Aging capacity: Enjoy it now or it will reach maturity within 2-3 years.

TERROIR

Site of Orschwihr, mostly clay-limestone soils (western slope of the Bollenberg) and sandstone (Bergholtz) east oriented.

VINIFICATION

This Pinot Noir Weid is characterized by aging in small oak barrels. This singular vinification method for Alsace varietals gives it finesse and elegance. Our oenologists take particular care of the winemaking of this wine. For this Pinot Noir, maceration with daily pump over for two weeks before the fermentation and aging in oak barrels for six months.
