Although appellation laws forbid Pinot Noir from being labeled “grand cru” (and thus from the name of the vineyard appearing on the label—hence “S”), Steinklotz is historically regarded as one of Alsace’s greatest terroirs for the variety. Its stone-laden calcareous marl yields a Pinot Noir of intense minerality and effusive spice, and Jean-Marie’s 2017 is both explosively aromatic and structurally powerful. Fermented naturally and with 50% whole clusters, the “S” spent two winters in used 600- liter barrels and was bottled with minimal sulfur and no fining or filtration. It offers a layered beauty very few examples of Pinot Noir from anywhere can approach, and the 2017 makes a strong case for Steinklotz as a true grand cru for red wine. -Rosenthal Wine Merchant
