Short Story: Domaine Pierre Frick has been handed down throughout the family for twelve generations and now covers 12 ha of vineyards. It is managed by Jean-Pierre and Chantal Frick, and their son Thomas.

At the forefront of the biodynamic movement Jean-Pierre Frick makes wines that are scrupulously natural. Frick converted in 1981 after having already turned to organics in 1970. Altogether he farms 12 hectares of vineyards, in several plots, a third of which is rented. Wines are fermented solely with indigenous yeasts and there is no acidification or chaptalisation. Each year, a couple of the cuvées are made without any sulphur dioxide additions.  This Pinot Noir is one of those.

From promoting biodiversity in the vineyard to hand harvesting all the grapes to using little and even no sulphur during the winemaking to ageing in large old oak casks, Jean-Pierre aspires to capture the essence of the grape and also the flavour of the terroir.

  • Harvesting is by hand (important to J-P for ‘the social side experienced during harvest and the search of quality through grape selection’.
  • whole-bunch pressing
  • cold settling overnight.
  • Ferment is ambient with indigenous yeasts.
  • no chaptalization
  • Old oak casks, averaging 3000 litres capacity, are used for maturation.
  • No filtration, no fining agents, no sulphur (SO2) added at any point.
