Les Vins Pirouettes is a project launched by Christian Binner, with the goal of bringing affordable natural wines to the table, while helping organic and biodynamic grape growers in Alsace move away from selling their grapes to cooperatives, in favor of making and bottling natural wines. Each cuvée is made at a young grower’s winery, where they supply the grapes and Christian supplies his 20 years of expertise in making natural wine in Alsace. Each cuvée features the name of the grower on the bottle.
Organic farming. Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, and fermented with indigenous yeast and no added sulfur. Elevage on the fine lees for several months in stainless steel tanks and bottled without sulfur. Bottles unfined and unfiltered.
A fresh, aromatic white with notes of tropical fruits, white flowers and lychee. The palate has flavors of ripe pineapple and sour tangerine.
