“Les Vins Pirouettes” is a collective project launched by Christian Binner, the renowned Alsatian winemaker (part of our book, of course), who’s been making legendary zero-zero wines in his Ammerschwihr winery for more than 20 years. Saddened by the sight of organic and biodynamic grapes being sold for little to cooperatives, Christian decided to encourage these growers to make wine under their proper name instead, thus promoting the idea of soulful terroir wines made with zero nonsense both in the vineyard and the cellar. 

Fun fact: David plays classical music continuously in his cellar during vinification.

Cultivated and vinified by François Bléger, Domaine Bléger, Saint Hippolyte

François Bléger has helmed his family estate in Saint Hippolyte since 1996, taking it over from his father, who previously sold the grapes directly. François began vinifying his own wine in their sandstone cellar, manually harvesting a variety of typical local grapes including Auxerrois, Muscat, Riesling, Pinot gris, Pinot noir and Gewurztraminer. His niece, Clémence, has been working with him the past few years, helping shepherd their conversion to organic farming. Here, they’ve provided us with a structured yet wonderfully easy-drinking new skin contact beauty!

Making 0f: Grapes are sorted while harvested by hand, then macerated for 12 days as whole bunches (natural carbonic maceration). Gentle pressing, then 9 months of élevage in foudre and stainless steel tanks.
