About Domaine Pierre Frick
The Domaine is now in the hands of the 12th generation of winemakers, managed by Jean-Pierre, Chantal and son Thomas. The Domaine covers 12 ha of vineyards. In the 1970s the Domaine was converted to organic and used biodynamic principles to make the wines. In 1981 they achieved certification with Demeter and the Domaine now stands as a testimony of what can be achieved using a low intervention biodynamic approach to wine making.
Ripe apples, greengage, plums and slightly honeyed with a floral nose and a bit of a sherry whiff. Lovely acidity and a fantastic finish that lingers on well after you put the glass down and nod in approval. This is natural wine at its best, made by true craftspeople.
