Tasting Notes: A white wine with a slightly tiled colour, this Auxerrois seduces with its powerful and rich nose, which evokes small yellow fruits and hazelnut. The palate is quite round, both fat and lively, with a finish of popcorn and grape aromas.
Tasting Notes: Pale ruby red, with reflections between pink and orange. The nose offers a pleasant fruity bouquet, among which emerge notes of ripe cherry, rose petals, flowers and orange peel, spices, mushrooms and wet stone. On the palate, all elements are in proportion, with a linear, fruity sip and calibrated acidity.
Tasting Notes: This skin-fermented Pinot Gris is pretty darn brilliant stuff. Juicy, fresh, spicy, with a bit of bite and drinkability beyond compare. It's reminiscent of currants, rose hips, juniper and blood oranges.
Tasting Notes: Rather long maceration which gives the wine a rather onion skin colour. The nose as well as the mouth are marked by notes of fresh and cooked fruits. Important mouthfeel: round, tannic. But the finish does not allow us to fall asleep because it is invigorating: superb acidity. Dense and lingering finish with bitter orange, ginger and a return of freshness.
Tasting Notes: Fresh, fruity floral and very mineral, with a salty finish, as you would expect from tears. Vinified by Julien Albertus - Domaine Kumpf et Meyer for the Vins & Volailles company, founded by Parisian wine saleswoman Fleur Godart, as part of a series of wines to take a stance against sexism, racism and homophobia called "Les Cuvées Militantes".
Tasting Notes: Somewhere between a red and an orange, this is a maceration of the Pinot Gris grape. It smells of sour cherries, with smokey undertones. In the mouth, it has smooth tannins, a good acidity and a bit of warmth from the alcohol. In the end there is a touch of bitterness, which leads into the long, fruity and tangy finish.
Tasting Notes: This light orange wine was created as a homage to the producer's son, born during the 2019 harvest. It shows notes of rose petals, quince and orange zest on the nose. The palate is fresh, but a little creamy, with a slight bitterness towards the end and a slightly salty minerality.

Tasting Notes: After settling in the family barn belonging to his great-uncle, a farmer, Jérôme François created Uncle Charles' barn. The estate was thus born in early 2014 in Ostheim. The dark color suggests a maceration period, as does the rather aromatic nose: the wine shows aromas of tropical fruits, white flowers, hay and honey. On the palate it is intense at first, but then becomes fresh and playful. The finish is long and carries notes of tropical fruit, as well as a salty minerality.

Tasting Notes: After settling in the family barn belonging to his great-uncle, a farmer, Jérôme François created Uncle Charles' barn. The estate was thus born in early 2014 in Ostheim. No less than a dozen grape varieties to express, beyond the diversity of their character, the true identity of the terroir that gives them life: a rare Alsace white, with a complexity and minerality that appeals to wine lovers.
Tasting Notes: The dress is golden, brilliant. The nose is expressive, on white fruits roasted with butter, marzipan and spices. The palate is quite fascinating, as much by its dynamics as its texture: it goes (very) straight, without resorting to acidity. The famous "invisible thread" is at work. And at the same time, one gets acquainted with a very soft matter, with a soft touch, in a very Meyer style airy spirit. The whole thing is dazzlingly fresh, overwhelming, even. The finish is just as fresh, finely chewed, with the return of white fruits roasted in butter, embellished with spices that linger for a long time.
Tasting Notes: This cuvée benefits from a whole bunch maceration of 3 weeks. The wine is aged in old barrels for 4 months. This bottle is capped because it has residual sugar left that could have recreated a fermentation that did not take place. The nose is frank with aromas of spices, honey, liquor and exotic fruits. The attack is on sugar followed by a touch of acidity then a very hot side (alcoholic), a touch of bitterness and tannins that lead to a warm and sweet aftertaste.
Tasting Notes: Direct pressing, ageing in old barrels for 4 months. This bottle is capped because it has residual sugar left that could have recreated a fermentation that did not take place. The nose is open on aromas of cherry flowers and fresh bread. The attack is on sugar, followed by a fresh acidity. The mid-palate brings back a sour/bitter balance to finish with a persistent acidity.
Tasting Notes: Maceration destemmed 3 days, stainless steel bottled during fermentation. The nose is very fruity with ripe red fruits, even candied. The attack is pearly and sweet with some tannins in the middle of the mouth. Final on sugar with a fine acidity and a clear presence of red fruits.
Tasting Notes: The nose is buttery, lemony, fine and elegant. The mouth is tonic, full of energy, tense, very dynamic. A fine bubbled crémant that can be served as an aperitif but also with oysters, seafood, raw or grilled fish.
Tasting Notes: Even more depth and finesse than the "classic" Pinot; a must! A cuvée that is particularly appreciated after two years of bottle age in our cellar ... But which is already proving to be very good right now!
