Soft and bright expression of Pinot Noir from Alsace. Silky cherry with a hint of earth. Balanced and elegant. This wine is “as straight as an arrow” and shows you what cool climate Pinot has to offer. The Pinot spends 18 months on the lees in used Burgundy barrels and is turned 3-4 times.
The Arnold’s winemaking roots run deep in Dambach-la-Ville (pun intended). The family has been making wine since 1711, Pierre taking over in 1985 and has been certified organic since 2009. The family's eight hectares of vines sit on a mixture of granite and various types of mica that retain heat and let water filter through. Alsace had a very tough year, many producers lost the majority of their grapes, so we can always feels grateful when drinking good wine.
