Domaine Brand & Fils - Ergersheim, Alsace
70% Cabernet Franc, 30% Gamay- 12% abv
Grapes from Loire & Beaujolais
Philippe has 10 hectares of his own vines in the region of Alsace, but sometimes winemakers want to explore different grapes from different regions. When Philippe finds winemakers who share the same ethos as him in terms of the organic/biodynamic farming method, he then personally selects the grapes he wants to take back to Alsace and begin the winemaking process his way.
Brand & Co is a new project started by Philippe, where he supports friends who make wine in different regions and he'll label and sell them.
This wine has 12 days of maceration and aged for 8 months in demi-muid (old oak barrel).
The Cabernet Franc grape gives a bit more structure to the wine with slightly green and earthy notes, where as the Gamay grape adds freshness, red berries, juiciness and a nice amount of acidity.
Recommend drinking this wine within the hour after opening as it changes. So, share it with a friend or if you can drink the bottle alone, then good on you!
