Pinot Blanc - 2020 et 2021 - Jean Dietrich
Nose carried by notes of melon, baked apple, a touch of honey... 2020 was a warm, generous and round vintage, while 2021 showed a fresh and tense profile, the blend of these two is therefore perfectly balanced.

A blend of two varieties of Pinot Blanc with a little Auxerrois, from vines around 40 years old, the Pinot Blanc is planted on gravel sands in Scherwiller and the Auxerrois on granite soils in the neighboring town of Dambach-la-Ville. The vineyard is grown biodynamically and harvested by hand. Direct pressing, vinification and aging in very old casks, blending of the two vintages just before bottling in Spring 2022, with just a micro-dose of sulphur.
Pierre and Jean (as in Maupassant’s novel but better) Dietrich (phew!) are the two brothers at the head of Domaine Achillée in Alsace, which they took over in 2015 following their father Yves. They were already off to a very good start, since the entire estate has been cultivated biodynamically since 2003. 18 hectares preserved from chemicals located in Scherwiller, right between Strasbourg...All wines
