Les Vins Pirouettes ‘Le PetNat de David’ Alsace 2020

Producer: Iconic, low intervention winemaker Christian Binner [of the legendary Domaine Binner] established the ‘Les Vins Pirouettes’ label as a resource for organic and biodynamic grape growers to bottle their own wines, rather than sell their grapes to cooperatives. “Each cuvée is made at a young grower’s winery, where they supply the grapes and Christian supplies his 20 years of expertise in making natural wine in Alsace.” The name of the grower is featured in the name of the particular cuvée.

Winemaking: Hand-harvested grapes, spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts, 2 days skin maceration, aged on the lees in tanks, second fermentation in the bottle. No added sugar or SO2, unfiltered, not disgorged.

Tasting Notes: Grapefruit, peach, nectarine, lemon, wildflowers and citrus acidity shimmer over a crisp mineral core. Zippy fizz, a squeeze of citrus zest on the mineral finish. Refined, refreshing, dashing.
