Wines of the Week - Vignoble des 2 Lunes

Today's triple threat of bubbles comes from Vignoble des 2 Lunes, an organic and biodynamic estate in Alsace. Their take on Blanc de Blancs is the "Comète," a Pinot Blanc with slightly riper notes of peaches and pears along with bright lemon. Next up is the " Clair 2 Lune," a Blanc de Noirs from Pinot Noir that is rich yet delicate. And since no sparkling limeup is complete without some pink wine, last is the "Poussiere d'Etoile," a super-dry sparkling rosé of Pinot Noir that shows strawberry, raspberry, and rhubarb notes.

Vignoble des 2 Lunes is a 14-hectare Demeter-certified estate in the heart of the Alsatian wine country. Owned and operated by the Buecher family for seven generations, sisters Amelie and Cecile Buecher have brought their own unique vision to the Domaine, walking a fine line between a drive for modernization and respect for antiquity. Amelie and Cecile have focused on protecting the health and balance of their vines. In 1997 they stopped spraying with pesticides and in 2007 achieved biodynamic certification from Demeter. In the cellar, the vision of the Domaine is to preserve the work that has been done in the vineyard. The sisters have also introduced a line of Crémants in addition to the traditional still wines and continue their work of upholding the fine quality of the estate.
