The Pinot Noir 2021 vintage is 100% Pinot Noir, a melange from all Jean’s vineyards because the size of the harvest in 2021 was relatively small. As with the Pinot Gris from 2021, because of a small harvest, this cuvée contains the grapes that would normally go into several Pinot Noir wines (including Sandstein, his traditional Pinot Noir, and Steiner).And for the same reason as the Pinot Gris it was bottled early.
If you haven’t tried a Pinot Noir from the Alsace region then you should do yourself a favour because they are often very good and quite often exemplary.
The Pinot Noir juice was matured in a large, old foudre and shows depth and elegance as well as a nice streak of aciditiy.
Jean Ginglinger comes from a multi-generational family of winemakers located in the central Alsatian commune of Pfaffenheim. Since 1610, the Ginglingers have grown grapes, made wine, and tended the land with diligence and care. After leaning toward organic and biodynamic practices in the 1990's, Jean's father also began experimenting with natural vinification techniques and a more hands-off approach to his wines. Jean-Francois Ginglinger, the newest member of the family to take the reigns, has carried these same practices into his own winemaking. All grapes are organically and biodynamically farmed, hand-picked, and vinified with native yeasts in the cellar. They never add sulphur. These are energetic, bright and pure wines.
