From: Alsace, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
The winery was founded in 1614 by Jean Baptiste Adam. Ownership has been traditionally passed down from father to son, from generation to generation. Today, the founder’s namesake, Jean Baptiste, is the current owner and general director of the estate. Jean Baptiste incorporates his knowledge gained from studying winemaking in Burgundy and business in Strasbourg with all that four centuries of tradition has taught him. The Adam estate is located in the heart of Alsace in the village of Ammerschwihr, which enjoys an exceptional microclimate of sunny, warm and dry days that guarantee ideal conditions for growing grapes. The region also receives the least amount of yearly rainfall, only about 500 mm per year. This ensures gradual ripening of the grapes and extremely aromatic wines. The wines of Adam come from slopes with optimum exposure to sunlight. The vineyards are a mosaic of terroir and minerals consisting of gneiss, granite, shale, and sandstone.
Tasting Notes: On the nose, it expresses notes of currants and red fruits. On the palate, fine bubbles will caress your palate to let appear then the fleshy side of the fruit. All wines from JB Adam are Bio-dynamically farmed.
