History: 

It is undoubtedly the first Pinot grape variety imported from Burgundy, no doubt because of the similarities in topography and climate betwenn Burgundy and Alsace. This prestigious red grape variety was prominent in Alsace in the middle Ages, but then disappeared, except for certain places where red wine was still appreciated. It is becoming increasingly popular today because of its freshness and fruitiness.

Location: 

60% comes from the limestone BOLLENBERG plot and 40% comes from the marl-limestone Grand Cru SAERING plot.

Wine-Making: 
With very low volumes, an excellent healthy state and a very beautiful concentration make the 2004 vintage the year of Pinot Noir. It is made through two macerations lasting about 10 days. It is raised in traditional tuns for 12 months which adds a more robust and more complex structure to its natural fruitiness.
