Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut from the talented Weingut Eymann, based in the wine region Pfalz in southern-western Germany, is a fresh, vivid and crisp sparkling wine, exclusively made from Pinot Noir grapes. This Sekt, as sparkling wine is called in Germany, has a delicate hay colour with a persistent mousse and many fine bubbles that give off fresh aromas of white flowers, apples, lime, apricot, nuts and biscuits. The mouth-watering palate is dry with a good structure and mouthfeel and the flavours are reminiscent of peach, grapefruit, green apples, pie crust and chalky notes. The flavours are balanced with a vivid acidity, making the wine easy to enjoy on all occasions. The wine is called Extra Brut because of the low residual sugar level and it appears very elegant and balanced with a refreshing finish in the end. Serve it chilled with fish, shellfish, sushi, tapas or simply as an aperitif.
Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut is made in much the same way as Champagne is in what is known as the Traditional Method. This is where the wine is fermented twice, with the second fermentation and maturation taking place in the bottle. This method creates a beautiful mousse and delicate aromas typically of bread, biscuits and nuts. The base wine for Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut ferments with native yeast in large neutral oak barrels before it is transferred into bottles where the wine rests for about 30 months.
Vincent Eymann took over family-owned house situated in the small village Gönnheim after his father in 1984. He cultivates 15 hectares of vineyards located on the steep slopes by the Rhine river with strictly organic and biodynamic methods. The vines are up to 50 years old and grow on a complex mosaic of various soil types and minerals. Eymann is passionate about creating authentic wines in harmony with nature, and above all for the health of our children and future generations. All his wines are certified organic and biodynamic since 2005, and he is a pioneer of this approach in the area. Biodynamic agriculture is very similar to organic farming, but it includes various esoteric concepts drawn from the ideas of Rudolf Steiner and Maria Thun. The goal is to grow healthy vines with the best fruit quality as possible as well as supporting nature and biodiversity.
