Description

We are 100 % estate winegrowers, we vinify exclusively our own harvest. We buy neither grapes, juice, nor wines (Alsatians winegrowers represent only 22% of the regional production). Located on the dizzy heights of the hills of Guebwiller, in southern Alsace, with slopes reaching 50° and an altitude going from 250 to 390 metres, our mountain-side vineyard is surely one of the most breathtaking in Alsace. Its excellent southwest, south, and southeast exposure ensures its perfect sun exposure.

Guebwiller is the only spot in Alsace producing 4 Grands Crus. Half of our vineyard, that is to say, 70 hectares, consists of these unique “terroirs”. The wines of our Grands Crus portray, from year to year, the ancient memory of the stones of our land. The Vosges sandstone, on the edge of the mountain, produces subtle nuances: plots located only a few meters from each other can produce very different wines.

Tasting Profile

Nose
The colour is lemon yellow with light reflections, of medium intensity. The disc is shiny, clear, and transparent. The wine has a beautiful youth. The nose is frank, pleasant, and intense. We perceive a dominant of floral smells, rose and spicy, candied ginger. Aeration amplifies these smells and reveals an exotic character, banana, passion fruit, papaya, mango, and Sichuan pepper. The superb quality of the raw material is expressed with great distinction and brilliance. Controlled sunstroke subjugates the range of odours.
Palate
The attack in the mouth is dense and voluminous, fluffy. It is adorned with a perfect silky touch with powerful alcohol support. We evolve in an environment with frank vivacity, marked by pearl. We find the aromas of the nose, this time, dominated by exoticism, white peach, banana, passion fruit, mango, flowers, rose, spices, Sichuan pepper, and candied ginger. We feel a hint of bitterness. The finish has a great length as well as a strict vivacity and a fine persistent bitterness. Ample and tasty, the structure of this wine is splendid. Charming and voluptuous, it has a very high degree of distinction and brilliance. A great wine in the making.
