EROS by David 2019
When we decide whether or not to support a winemaker, our goal is to be constantly tipping the needle toward natural wines-- supporting established natty grower/producers while also encouraging the next generation of natural winemakers-- so we are all about natural wine guru Christian Binner's Les Vins Pirouettes project. Launched in an effort to help organic and biodynamic grape growers in Alsace move away from selling their grapes to cooperatives towards making and bottling natural wines, LVP also brings affordable natural wines to the table. 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. The body of this wine is on the lighter side showcasing nutty, oxidized orange blossoms on the nose. The palate is bursting with orange blossoms with a slight touch of orange pith. Saline-like acidity and grippy tannins give this wine a beautiful structure.
