Pinot Noir Granite - 2017 - Jean Dietrich - Magnum
Real love for this cuvée! Strawberry and crushed raspberry, black cherry, rose water, coffee, undergrowth, chocolate orangette… Pure, tannic and mineral palate, lifted by a hint of acidity, a highly digestible red wine. Worth decanting.

100% Pinot Noir from 50- to 100-year-old vines, grown biodynamically and planted on granitic soils. Manual harvesting and natural vinification: three weeks of maceration in whole bunches, gentle pressing, very long aging, four years in the cellar for 60% in Burgundy barrels with several new barrels, and 40% in stainless steel vats. Blending of the vats and barrels then bottling in 2021, without fining, filtration or added sulfites.
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
