Les Vins Pirouettes Espectacular from Alsace offer a tantalizing fusion of flavors crafted by a collective of over twenty independent winemakers committed to organic and biodynamic practices. This cuvée, a culmination of pioneering maceration trials within the domaine, showcases a harmonious blend of traditional Alsatian grape varieties such as Auxerrois, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Muscat. Cultivated in marno-calcareous soils with a modest yield of 50 hL/ha, these grapes undergo manual harvesting and meticulous Demeter-certified farming methods. The winemaking process involves a 10-day maceration period on each grape variety (except for Auxerrois, which undergoes 15 days), followed by pressing and meticulous blending. Subsequently, the wine matures for 10 months in stainless steel tanks, allowing it to express its vibrant, fruit-forward character with finesse and purity.

The presence of clay, more or less significant, introduces a cooler element to the soil, slowing the ripening process and preserving a superior acidity level. Meanwhile, the existence of limestone profoundly influences the aromatic profile and texture of the wine, enhancing spiciness, reducing floral notes, and imparting a distinctively firm tannin structure crucial for balance. Gewürztraminer, unique in Alsace, demands optimal ripeness to avoid an overly aromatic, non-complex, and bitter outcome. Terroir quality is pivotal, emphasizing the importance of a late harvest. With naturally low acidity, the late harvest minimally impacts the wine, especially when sourced from top vineyards or Grand Crus, where younger vines complement their elder counterparts.
