Domaine Brand & Fils - Ergersheim, Alsace
100% Pinot Noir - 14.5% abv
A fully complex Pinot Noir. The way we handled this bottle was to leave it in the fridge like you would with a white wine until it reached around 10 degrees celsius. Then, once we opened it, we found these rich, blackcurrant, forest fruit characteristics. It felt like standing in the woods with wet leaves influencing our senses. With the advantage of chilling this wine, you gain these flowing waves of acidity that knock you back and make you question what you originally thought Pinot Noir stood for. And that was just the first half of the bottle. The second half was matched with Sicilian sausages filled with cheese and roasted vegetables. You really need to pair this wine (especially the second half) with food, as the end of the bottle is fully immersed with the richness from the skins.
We highly recommend exploring this bottle and sharing it with a friend so you can start an inquisitive conversation about the different styles of Pinot Noir. Consume within the hour after you've opened it. This bottle will not last the next day!
