Pierre FrickAlsace, France
Run by the Frick family, Jean-Pierre, Chantal and their son Thomas, this 12 hectare estate prides itself in clean wines that are undoubtedly Alsatian, made as naturally as possible.
They've had Demeter certification since 1990, and since 1999 they have even made some of their cuvees without any addition of sulphites. Their grape parcels are spread out across a 15km area, on several different terroirs, which allows them to produce a variety of Crus and grape varieties, though most are characterised by chalky soils. Their wines are never interfered with, just lightly filtered and bottled with an absolute minimum of sulphur. They are some of the best examples of Alsace wines we've come across - wines of real character and depth.
