TERROIR : Granite , very old vine located inside the Grand Cru Frankstein on the Pflanzer. The Pinot Noir is not allowed to carry the mention Grand Cru Frankstein, that is why we call it “F” for Frankstein.
VINIFICATION : Careful destemming to preserve the aromas, then long maceration of 2 weeks to allow an harmonious structure. 11 months aging in an old oak cask (over 100 years old) to harmonize the tannins, but without giving any oak taste. Unfiltered, no sulfite addition : natural wine. Estate bottled.
TASTING NOTES : Complex on the nose, aromas of pepper typical of the granitic soil. Cherries, cinnamon. Good structure in mouth, dense, ripe tannins with a crystalline saltiness giving a great length. Nice freshness, elegant.
