J. M. Sohler Les Terrasses Pinot Noir 2017

Alsace, FranceSourced from a 27-year-old granitic soiled, terraced pinot noir vineyard in Blienschwiller, in the Bas-Rhin, this was fermented and aged in very old (75+ years), very large wood. Concentrated but so elegantly finessed, with beauty haunting cherry and raspberry licked with kirsch and flaked with sea salts. The core of red fruit is housed by spiderweb tannins and lifted with an easy, natural swell of acidity. Nothing is forced with this charming wine; drinking lovely now, but will hold in your cellar short term.Tasted: 13 July 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 28.95 consignment Producer: J. M.
