The winery owns vineyards in the Grand Cru Osterberg in Ribeauvillé but also fields in Bergheim and Hunawihr, in particular the Grand Cru Rosacker. The wines are pure with perfectly integrated residual sugars, especially from grapes coming from their more calcareous fields.

PINOT NOIR BARRIQUE 2009                                                             15/20
