Certified organic and biodynamic and made by a family who have farmed in this area of Alsace for more than 400 years.
An intense, deep red with violet nuances. The absence of filtration adds to the depth of its colour. This wine will benefit from being opened and left to breathe in advance of tasting it: the slightly animal notes will cede their place to black fruits, (e.g. Morello cherries) and nuts with shells, (hazelnuts and pistachios and almonds), as well as dark chocolate and coffee and spices), its prominent tannins and good acidity balance out and lighten its rich volume and its weight.
Based in the village of Scherwiller, halfway between Strasbourg and Colmar, Domaine Achillée was not named so due to their weak ankles. Achillée is the name for yarrow, a very important plant used in biodynamic farming and one that grows abundantly on the Dietrich family’s vineyards. Their winery is rumoured to be the largest building made of straw in Europe.
