Pierre Frick Pinot Gris "V" Maceration 2018
Domaine Pierre Frick has been handed down throughout the family for twelve generations and now covers 12 ha of vineyards. It is managed by Jean-Pierre and Chantal Frick, and their son Thomas Frick. At the forefront of the biodynamic movement Jean-Pierre Frick makes wines that are scrupulously natural. Frick converted in 1981 after having already turned to organics in 1970. Altogether he farms 12 hectares of vineyards, in several plots, a third of which is rented. From promoting biodiversity in the vineyard to hand harvesting all the grapes to using little and even no sulphur during the winemaking to ageing in large old oak casks, Jean-Pierre aspires to capture the essence of the grape and also the flavour of the terroir.
Another show-stopper from the prolific Pierre Frick. After 7 days of skin contact, the grapes spend 6 months on fine lees in old oak foudre. Funky aromatics, followed by intense fruit and minerality on the palate. It has a fairly full body for a Pinot Gris, with solid tannin balanced by vibrant acidity.
