Product overview

With its home at the heart of Eastern France and Western Germany, Leon Beyer has been cultivating some of the finest Alsace wines since the early 16th century. This unique landscape, with its complex history and geography, has made it the perfect place for wine-makers to share their expertise. Western Germany has traditionally been the home to Pinot Noir, but with this fine vintage, Leon Beyer adds something particularly Alsacien.

Typical of an Alsace red, this wine contains light aromas of red berries and cherry that are sure to warm your palate in the colder months and leave you craving more. Arguably one of the more difficult grapes to cultivate, Leon Beyer has used a great deal of skill and care to perfect its Pinot Noir and produce a product of the finest quality, not to mention a truly singular drinking experience.

The distinctly acidic taste of this red is complemented by suggestive notes of earth, smoke, and leather creating an overall smooth wine that pairs nicely with a variety of cuisine. Leon Beyer has a well-earned host of honorary titles from Académie des Gastronomes, as well as the Académie intérnationale du Vin.

Ingredients

100% Pinot noir Contains sulfites
