Fruity & Earthy

Sourced 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 barrels.

Concentrated but so elegantly finessed, with cherry and raspberry laced with kirsch and flakey sea salt. The core of red fruit is housed by dusty tannins and lifted with an easy, natural acidity. Nothing is forced with this charming wine; drinking lovely now, but will hold in your cellar short term.

Pairs beautifully with salmon or other fatty fish, roasted chicken or pasta dishes. 

About the Winery

JM Sohler

Situated 30 km southwest of Strasbourg, J.M. Sohler is a boutique estate family producer nestled in the hamlet of Blienschwiller. To the north lies Nothalten, noted for its Rieslings, especially Grand Cru Muenchberg. To the south lies Dambach-la-Ville, considered by many to be the best wine village in the Bas-Rhin.

The two houses pictured on the label are the home and winery of the Sohler family. The caves, where all the wine is matured, date back to 1563. The winery is well known for their wines from the Grand Cru Winzenberg vineyard, overlooking the town of Blienschwiller, at an altitude of 240 to 320m. Its steep southeast facing slope and granite-mica soils produce powerful, long-lived wines.
