#Repost @suestyle_ with @get_repost ・・・ A few years ago, Pinot Noir in Alsace was a miserable beverage: thin, gaunt, a bit green, a constant reminder that Alsace is (principally) a fine white wine region. So what changed? Firstly the climate. We now can achieve degrees of ripeness long only dreamed of. Then, growers started believing in the capacity of their vineyards to produce decent PN (geology, terroir) and began to plant decent clones in sites formerly reserved for the 4 Grand Cru grapes (R, PG, M & G). The result? Wines like this from biodynamic estate Vignoble des 2 Lunes, run by sisters Amélie and Cécile Buecher. Perfumed, graceful, fruit-filled with a touch of bitterness at the end, like a measured pinch of seasoning to a dish. Hoping I bought more than one bottle... . . . #alsace #drinkAlsace #vignobledes2lunes #biodynamic #pinotnoir
