In May 2014, Jean-Baptiste Adam and his family celebrated the 400th anniversary of their family being grape growers and winemakers in Ammerschwihr, Alsace, France. Jean-Baptiste’s daughter, Laure, is the 15th generation to participate in the family wine business. Through the centuries family members have been leaders in their community. Now, Jean-Baptiste can count himself among the leaders of biodynamic farming in Alsace. Jean-Baptiste Adam produces wines of elegance, balance, minerality and longevity.
On this wine’s shy nose, hints of summer blossom and tropical overtones dissipate as quickly as they appear. The palate gives a lovely picture of freshness and verve, with a juicy, flowing body anchored in zesty lemon and orange that reside in a concentrated core of freshness. There is something cool and cooling about this wine. The finish is dry and zesty.
