Les Pinots d'Alsace" Domaine Bott-Geyl 2007

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

This is a blend of Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir (vinified as a white wine). The wine is golden in the glass, the nose, deep and earthy. Showing spice notes on the nose, richness on the palate, and firm minerality on the finish, it's truly a unique bottle.

Jean-Christophe Bott is heir to the family tradition dating back to 1795, when his ancestor, Jean-Martin Geyl tended his vines and made his wine. Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993 and he converted the vineyards to be organic in 2000 and then biodynamic in 2002. In the vineyards he concentrates on low yields and in the cellars he oversees the vinification in the most natural and minimalist manner. The whole art is to bring together tradition and modernity, to perpetuate the vignoble for posterity and to protect its ecology. Today, we have the good fortune to tend 14 hectares of vines including 4 Grands Crus and 3 Lieux-dits. We strive to bring out the natural qualities and the uniqueness of each of our terroirs and to conduct the vinification in such a way that this uniqueness is imbedded in our wines. This search for the authentic does not follow fashion: Jean-Christophe Bott has drawn directly from the riches of viticulture in the past, from omnipresent Nature and from his experiences at wine producers in France, in Germany and in the New World. It is his way of bringing together the history of the men and the women of the Bott family of Ribeauvillé and the Geyl family of Béblenheim, who trod the ground of the chai and of the vineyards over the generations. The Domaine consists of 75 parcelles spread out over 7 communes from Ribeauvillé to Kientzheim in the heart of the region named the “the Pearls of Vignoble”. Read less
