What are the main effects of Biodynamie ?
I find that the soil structure becomes suppler, less compact due prolipheration of microbe life and to the formation of humus. Also, we established a very nice regularity in the vines with a great balance between leaves and fruits.
How does your team live biodynamic viticulture on a daily basis ?
The team finds the experience very positive and enriching: biodynamie allows us to work the vine in the « cleanest » way possible. No chemical weeding, no pesticide neither for the nature. Furthermore, he team really appreciates the result of its meticulous work when comes the time of a tasting, and is righteously convinced that great wines come, first and foremost, from great work in the vines !
What brings the label AB that you are adding to your bottles since 2007 ?
The AB label is the accomplishment of numerous years of meticulous work in the vine. It will help our customers understand in the blink of an eye, the great efforts made by our team all through the year, in making the best possible wines, and our firm commitment to preserving the earth a healthy place to pass on to our children.
« Les Grands Vins de Jean-Baptiste ADAM » produced in our domaine following the strict guidelines of biodynamie, the grapes are hand harvested, and carefully handpicked once in the cellar. The alcoholic fermentation takes place without requiring the addition of yeast in order to produce Wines with great complexity, offering the highest expression of our magnificent terroirs.
These efforts are rewarded by wines expressing the finesse of terroirs. It is our greatest satisfaction.
This elegant bottle, dead leaf colored amplifies the exceptional character of these great wines.
After three years of bottle maturation, beginning with the 2007 vintage, we will add the mention “Agriculture Biologique” on the back label for the “Les Grands Vins de Jean-Baptiste ADAM” wines.
