This vintage was an important one for André Ostertag. Not only was 2015 the fiftieth anniversary of the domaine, it was also the first vintage with his son, Arthur, working full time in the cellar. Vintage 2015 was one of looking back on the countless accomplishments of the last fifty years, as well as looking forward with the satisfaction of another talented generation on board to mind the next fifty. Almost as if the skies aligned to mark the occasion, the 2015 vintage ended up being beyond exceptional. The weather was hot, for sure, but with a few perfectly timed rains, some clever biodynamic soil management, and teas of chamomile and cactus extract to help the vines through the heat, the Ostertags came out of the cellar convinced that this could be the greatest vintage since the legendary ’47 and ’59. This Pinot Noir, for example, is dark, herbal, earthy, full, and complete, unlike any rouge typically produced this far north. Truly exceptional Pinot from an exceptional family and exceptional vintage. Bravo, and here’s to fifty years more . . . –Chris Santini
