Pierre Frick, Chasselas 2018
Domaine Pierre Frick has been handed down throughout the family for twelve generations and now covers 12 ha of vineyards. It is managed by Jean-Pierre and Chantal Frick, and their son Thomas Frick. In 1970 Peter and Annette Frick converted the estate to an organic and holistic approach to the health of the soil and plants excluding the use of herbicides, soluble fertilizers and chemical treatments. In order to increase the vitality of the soil, vines and wines, Jean-Pierre moved towards biodynamic farming and achieved certification in 1981. The grapes for this wine come from a parcel of vines ’Krottenfues’, situated above the village of Rouffach, and is an upper slope of the Grand Cru parcel of Vorbourg- it is East-facing, beneath the yellow sandstone quarries, the soil here is marl/sandstone which combines good aeration with efficient water retention.
Whole bunch are pressed and rested on its lees for 6-9 months in old oak barrels. Offers enticing and altogether unusual aromas of dry sherry, medlars, greengage, and fermenting cider apples; the palate, however, reveals excellent tension with lovely acidity.
