About the wine
At one of the highest elevations in northeastern France's Alsace, based out of the Haut-Rhin's village of Husseren-les-Châteaux, Pierre Weber is producing wine that is the product of his recovery of his family's vines. With the passing of his grandfather, Pierre returned home; he'd carved out a career in Paris as an environmental engineer and, still only 32 years old, felt it was the correct time to come home and start this new journey in life, geared as he was with expertise in & passion for soil science and the environmental impact of small-scale agriculture. Over the course of 4 hectares of vines that wander down the vertiginous slopes away from his home village, Pierre is farming the usual suspects of Alsatian varieties on this terroir that is technically (if classified, but Pierre bottles largely as Vin de France) part of a Grand Cru -- Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, & Sylvaner. The macerations are short and pressings long & gentle, all in an effort to tease out the often brilliant natural aromatics of the Alsatian grapes -- none of the wines see any additives throughout & the farming is organic with some biodynamic treatments increasingly employed year over year. An exciting up-and-coming producer who is quietly making his way in France's northeast.
