I would be doing pirouettes too if I could make wine like this! Christian Binner started a movement of real wine in Alsace.  He and his friends now make a bunch of different wines under the 'Les Vins Pirouettes' label.  This is glou glou (crushable, intense, natural, acid driven, fresh, fruity, deliciousness) Pinot Noir from Christian Engel, of Domaine Engel.  The grapes come from a two acre plot of 40 year old Pinot Noir vines on gneiss soils.  Fifteen days of maceration, all steel for ferment and aging, no sulfur added.
