Meyer-Näkel Illusion Blanc de Noirs 2021

Blanc de Noir (French literally: “white from black”) is the French name for a white wine made from red wine varieties. The term has not yet been defined in German wine law, but is also not objected to the illusion of white wine.

Grape Varietals & Region: 100% Pinot Noir from Ahr, Germany. The secret of the Ahr wines is based on a perfect microclimate, which is created by the geological conditions. The steep, south-facing vineyards offer optimal exposure to the sun. The predominant weathered soils of slate and greywacke are easily warmed and are able to store this heat. The narrow valley, protected by the Eifel mountains, heats up quickly and offers the vines an ideal habitat.

Taste Profile: It is rich in nuances, with a play of aromas of pear, apple, yellow peach and an elegant minerality. The partial malolactic fermentation softens the acid slightly and allows the melty aromas to develop.

Winemaking Process: The grapes are picked by hand and carefully transported to the winery in small boxes. The production takes place in the same way as the champagne base wine. Red grapes are pressed into the press as whole bunches (i.e. not destemmed and mashed). With gentle pressure, only the bright, clear juice inside the berry is extracted. The must pressed in this way is then fermented cool like a white wine and then subjected to malolactic fermentation. The cooled and controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and a small percentage in barriques. After several weeks of storage on the fine yeast, bottling takes place after approx. 6 months. The “Illusion” is a white-pressed Pinot Noir.
