Overview of the Wine
In May 2014, Jean-Baptiste Adam and his family celebrated the 400th anniversary of their family being grape growers and winemakers in Ammerschwihr, Alsace, France. Jean-Baptiste’s daughter, Laure, is the 15th generation to participate in the family wine business. Through the centuries family members have been leaders in their community. Now, Jean-Baptiste can count himself among the leaders of biodynamic farming in Alsace. Jean-Baptiste Adam produces wines of elegance, balance, minerality and longevity.
A Natural Wine:
All grapes are hand harvested. Fermentations are all from naturally occurring yeast. In an effort to maintain the purity of the fruit in his wines, Jean-Baptiste discards the first and last parts of pressing the grapes, retaining only the juice from the cour (heart) of the pressing.
Grape / Blend
100% Pinot Gris
Expressing lotus flower aromas and jasmine infusion on the nose, this Pinot Gris is fresh and well structured on the palate on notes of mango and nectarine, with a delicate and silky smooth finish.
89 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Rich hints of juicy pear on the nose lead to an equally fruity palate. The pear notes and juiciness are boosted by slight sweetness that is held in check by lovely texture and clean freshness. The finish is off dry. - Anne Krebiehl
