A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée from young vines farmed organically and planted on a vein of clayey soil. The grapes are handpicked of course, followed by natural vinification: 8days of carbonic maceration, and six months maturation in large barrels. Bottled in March 2021 without filtration or fining, and zero sulphur!
Léo Dirringer, child of the 1992 vintage, is a young Alsatian winemaker with a bright future. His parents' estate, the Ruhlmann Dirringer family, is located in Dambach la Ville, on the beautiful route des vins d'Alsace. It is therefore quite natural that Léo turnes viticulture, and after a diploma in viticulture and oenology in Montpellier, he left for Switzerland, at the oenology school of Saint Mont. This is where he got the "call of Nature": after an internship with Marie-Thérèse Chappaz, he is convinced of the importance of the quality of the grapes and respect for the terroir. It is then a famous bottle of Chalasses Marnes Bleues 2011 by a certain Ganevat who will show him the voice of sulfur-free vinifications and their purity. At the end of 2016, Léo took over the estate from his parents and began converting it to organic, he is cultivating the vines and gradually buying shares of the farm. Natural vinifications are of course on the program, as well as biodynamic tests. Its first vintage in 2017 is a success, you will have to keep an eye on him!
