Our Alsace Wines › Late Harvest Wines (VT & SGN)

Pinot Gris Sélection de Grains Nobles 2010

  • The vintage
  • Good acidity, rich fruit and extremely limited yields marked the 2010 Alsace vintage. For the winegrower, the climatic conditions have rarely been more difficult. There were winter freezes, late budbreaks under the rain, uneven flowering then finally a warm summer. Harvest began on September 27th. Grapes arriving in the cellar showed a high concentration of sugar and a wonderfully fresh acidity.
  • 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 in early October.
  • Winemaking
  • Grapes are placed in pneumatic presses by gravity and gently pressed for 3-6 hrs to preserve maximum varietal flavors and aromas. Juices are then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Sterile cartridge filtration and bottling takes place in August.
