Louis Maurer, Alsace Pinot Noir 2020
From the importer-
Louis is in his early 20s farming his family's land under his grandfather's tutelage. The vineyard is just 4 hectares and is planted with Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, and Riesling from a superb terroir in Lerchenberg in Eichoffen. Descended from a family of vignerons, Louis was inspired by the natural winemaking approach of Rietsch. 60 year old vines NW of Vosge Mountains in Alsace on sandstone in clay and marl on west facing slopes. Whole cluster semi carbonic fermentation for 14 days in stainless steel. Wild yeast, no additions. Louis's wines are bottled in the springtime for freshness.
