Alsace is rightly famous for its great whites and pinot noir is the only red grape cultivated, used for the production of still as well as sparkling wines (like Cremant d’Alsace).
However, the results are extremely interesting, but so far from Burgundy in terms of elegance. On the contrary, there is more than a similarity with less famous wines from other areas such as Cheverny, for example.
Trying to explain in a simple way, without technicalities, why I liked so much Pinot Noir Sand 2016 (no added sulphites) by JeanGinglinger, I would talk about its roughness, with a crispy fruit and a refreshing, satisfying and no-frills sip.
Perfect match with everything you prefer.
