Les Saveurs, Christian Binner
Region: Alsace, France
Grapes: Riesling, Sylvaner, Gewurztraminer & Auxerrois
Wine type: White
About: The domaine has been passed down through the family from father to son since 1770. The Binners are proud of the fact that never in their family’s history has the family turned to a négociant activity- they have always vinified their own grapes, says Christian “it is simply not in our genes to be négociants”. The domaine is entirely a family-run business with Joseph Binner, Christian’s father and Monique Binner, Christian’s mother, and Beatrice Cotter-Binner, Christian’s sister, all working together. The family have traced back members of the Binner family who had vineyards in the Lower Rhine well, before it was settled in in Alsace.
A very floral and aromatic blend with a touch of grapefruit.
