Domaine Pierre Frick has been handed down throughout the family for twelve generations and now covers 12 ha of vineyards. It is managed by Jean-Pierre and Chantal Frick, and their son Thomas Frick. At the forefront of the biodynamic movement Jean-Pierre Frick makes wines that are scrupulously natural.
Colour: bright garnet. Nose: subtle notes of ripe red fruits (raspberry jam, elderberries, enhanced by hints of violets, clove and toasted almonds. Generous, fresh and vivacious on the palate. Finish: ripe, well-integrated, yet firm tannins hemming in distinct flavours of redcurrant jam and blackcurrant and Morello cherry, yet a definitely saline impression tops off the finale.
