Domaine Hausherr “La Colline Bombée” Fronenberg, 2011

Fun wine with lots of character and very drinkable. Pretty direct for a Pinot Noir. One of 10 different assemblages from Hubert and Heidi in Eguisheim (kinda sounds like Lord of the Rings), they pride themselves in letting the soil do most of the work, they just respect the land and its tendencies, and expect each year to bring something slightly different. When describing their production technique, and I quote: “Mais rien de miraculeux, chez nous le seul miracle est celui de la nature!” (Nothing special, the only miracle here comes from nature itself!)
