Pinot power from a surprising (French) place

Posted by Joelle Thomson on

If Alsace Pinot Noir has not yet featured on your wine drinking radar, try this newcomer in store at Regional Wines from Domaine Rene Mure, an outstanding wine producer situated in Alsace. 

The Alsace region is driest and most northern wine region in eastern France - and once, incidentally, part of Germany, until the First World War. This is why the Alsace region is dedicated to aromatic German white grape varieties, such as Riesling and Gewurztraminer and Sylvaner, among many others. On the red front, there is this wine. A powerful, pretty, silky and succulent expression of Pinot Noir from one of the most interesting wine regions in France.

This is an impressive wine from a producer where the husband-wife team are committed to organic grape and wine production. 

2019 Domaine Rene Mure Pinot Noir RRP $63.99

An impressive expression of Pinot North from the far north east corner of France and the country's driest wine region, Alsace. This wine was harvested over three days in late September 2019 and is made using 50% whole bunch fermentation which was taken to bone dry with less than 1 gram of residual sugar. It was matured in barrels and drinks well now with balance of fresh acidity in keeping with its bold, ripe red and dark cherry flavour notes, intermingle with touches of spice in a wine with a long, bright finish. It can age for four to five years.
