As you can probably tell by now, we don't usually sell a lot of whites. When there's such a rich world of skin-contact wines, the white wine world can feel a little... flat. But this white stands out. Aged with the lees (leftover yeast particles) to add a bit more flavor and texture, and bottled unfiltered, this is as natural a white wine can get. Apple and light citrus are afoot, as well as some freshly cut grass. Probably tastes better lying on the grass as well.
About the Producer
"Les Vins Pirouettes is a project launched by Christian Binner, that brings affordable natural wines to the table, and at the same time helps organic and biodynamic grape growers in Alsace move away from selling their grapes to cooperatives towards making and bottling natural wines. 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, and of course his marketing and distribution savviness. Each cuvée will feature the name of the grower on the bottle."
