Lucas Rieffel
Pinot Noir Nature, 2018

Grower: Lucas Rieffel
Region: Mittelbergheim, Alsace, France
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir
Viticulture: Organic
Size: 75cl bottle

Lucas has been making this wine since he started up the winery in the early nineties. With experience comes incredible insight into his fruit coming from around Mittelbergheim. Normally he would vinify each of the three parcels separately, but in 2018 the yields were so low he was forced to blend. Rustic fruit abound here, with a little vegetality to the tannin and angularity to the palate. That said, the wine is quintessentially Alsacien: brambly, stern, and delicious.
