The Binner estate was established in 1770. The family owns nine hectares in Alsace but only six hectares are cultivated with vines. They are a certified organic producer and also practice biodynamic farming. They produce "natural wines" using very few additives and no technological manipulations.
This is a highly aromatic and floral wine with spicy notes. Green apples, pear, lemon drops, peach and lychee mingle seamlessly on the palate with minerality, floral and sweet spice flavours. This is a dry style of wine which has a long finish.
Pure Roussane that manages to be both rich, creamy with golden honey notes and racey and mineraly at the same time. A real treat. The vineyard is organic and the wine is made with no added sulphur.
Awarded 95 points and a Platinum Best In Category (IGP Languedoc-Roussillon White) at the Decanter World Wine Awards (www.decanter.com): see their August 2017 DWWA supplement (see blue link below).
This wine is bright with green and gold tones. There are aromas and flavours of intense peaches and apricots as well as hints of honeysuckle and lemon verbena. It has a long finish which has mineral nuances. This wine does benefit from being decanted or allowed to breath and goes perfectly with white meat in sauce, fish and cheese. This wine will drink well for at least 5 years.
“Sur Lie” means the wine was matured on its lees until bottling, giving it an attractive “prickle” on the palate and nice weight. Clean tasting with crisp acidity and a bright, fresh minerality.

Shows bright yellow colour with golden hues. The nose is fresh and perfumed with honeysuckle and almond. The palate is full bodied and smooth textured, with cooked apple and stone fruits notes alongside the subtle spiciness of barrel ageing. The finish is long with a light acidity which leaves a refreshing long lasting effect.
