An original and very charming Pinot Blanc d'Alsace
  • The vintage
  • 2011 was an extremely well balanced vintage. The days at the end of the growing season were sunny and warm. Nights were cool. Aromas and fine acidities were preserved. We took the opportunity to vinify the wines a bit drier to showcase the lovely crisp structures.
  • Terroir
  • Essentially calcareous-clay
  • In the vineyard
  • Our domaine is in conversion BIO, Ecocert France certified, since 2010. Our goal is to foster soil enrichment with cover crops, composts, mulching and minimum tillage. We adapt cover crops to our local rainfall. When abundant, we let the grasses grow. When particularly dry, we till the soil or use the rolofaca which bends the grasses and creates a mulch. Grapes are hand harvested exclusively in early October.
  • Winemaking
  • Grapes are placed in pneumatic presses by gravity and then gently pressed for up to 5 hours. This preserves maximum varietal flavors and aromas. Juices are fermented slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks then change containers. They continue their malo lactic fermentation in 1-3 years old oak barrels. After this fermentation the wine rests quietly in the barrels until bottling in September.
