The Dietrich family has farmed land in Alsace since 1600. In the past the family farm used to be run on the basis of polyculture however the family now concentrate on growing grape vines and other fruit. In 1999 Yves converted the estate to organic farming (at the time he would sell his grapes to the local cave-cooperative). Pierre and Jean took over the responsibility of the winery in 2016, and were the first members of the family to bottle the estate’s wines. The estate has been farmed with biodynamics ever since 2003.
A bright, eye-catching pale-yellow colour. The nose shows a slightly oxidative characteristic, this isn’t a fault in the wine, this was purposeful. This is followed by touches of sweet almond, and peaches as well as Mirabelle plums. The palate reveals a well-integrated acidity, then led by the peachy style contributed by the Auxerrois. The sweet almond aromas find their echo on the palate. A vivacious streak of acidity expands gradually on the palate, resulting in an elegant finish.
