The Wine: La Bullette de David 2018
Les Vins Pirouettes by Binner & Associates La Bullette de David is a sparkling natural wine made from sustainably farmed Riesling grapes grown in Alsace, France. The grapes are hand-harvested with a triage in the vines, destemmed, and fermented with indigenous yeast and zero sulfur. The wine spends a few days on the lees before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Serve chilled!
The Producer: Les Vins Pirouettes by Binner & Associates
Les Vins Pirouettes is a project launched by Christian Binner, that brings affordable natural wines to the table, and at the same time helps organic and biodynamic grape growers in Alsace move away from selling their grapes to cooperatives towards making and bottling natural wines. Each cuvée is made at a young grower’s winery, where they supply the grapes and Christian supplies his 20 years of expertise in making natural wine in Alsace, and of course his marketing and distribution savviness. Each cuvée will feature the name of the grower on the bottle. (source: Jenny & Francois)
