2019 St-Hippolyte Rouge – Barrel-aged

Pinot Noir is the only red variety grown in the region. It is used to make this wine with its typical fruitiness evocative of cherries. Alsace’s Saint-Hippolyte Rouge communal appellation enshrines the quality of the red wines made from our village terroir. The soil full of iron ore endows this Alsatian red with a singular expression, thanks to its characteristic aromas of ripe berries. This Saint-Hippolyte Rouge then continues to mature for a year in oak barrels.
