Pinot Noir Lieu dit "Rotenberg" 2016 Alsace - Domaine Vincent Stoeffler


We have been instantly charmed by this Pinot Noir coming from a specific plot (or "lieu-dit") in Ribeauvillé, developing complex aromas of black cherry and blackberry, with a welcome hint of sweet spices. Beautiful finish with silky tannins and a great minerality, very typical of this terroir. A great example of what Alsace can offer when it comes to red wines, especially since this is the only red wine of the selection - the entry-level Pinot Noir of the domain was a bit to dull for us so we decided to skip it.

88/100 "The cloudy (unfiltered), cherry-colored Pinot Noir Rotenberg is pure, fresh and elegant on the nose where red berry and cherry aromas are displayed. Medium- to full-bodied, fresh and vital, with a good purity, grip and freshness, this is an attractive Pinot Noir to be drunk in the next 5-7 years." (previous vintage)

Guide-Hachette.jpg

1* - Very well-made wine "In the glass, a bright garnet colour, complex fragrances, nice aromas of small red fruit, leather and wooden notes. Supported by beautiful integrated tannins, the supple palate gives a real elegance." (previous vintage)
