Muriel’s advice: this is one of those wines that you look forward to drinking as an aperitif, dessert or any other time of the day, simply for the sensory pleasure it gives.

Vines : Our vines are on average 30 years old, from selected old varieties and grafted to the estate from generation to generation.
Divided into slopes and midslopes on 40 plots for an area of 8 ha. This diversity is found in the grapes of each plot.
The yield is reduced to less than 60 hl/ha.
We mow the grass 1 out of 2 rows and we work the soil of the other row by practising organic viticulture since the 1980s.
We started organic certification in 2019.
Our soils are alive, our vines are balanced, our grapes are «well in their skin».

Terroir : This wine was born in our plot «Gaentzbrunnen» which means «Fountain with geese». There is always the source where the king’s geese were watered to produce foie gras.
This terroir is rich in clay, spring water and provided with large scree of pink sandstone from the Vosges: it is a terroir rich in mineral salts.

In the cellar : We taste the grapes to decide on the optimal harvest of each plot and achieve the best balance in sugar, acidity and taste.
Our pneumatic press allows a smooth and slow extraction. Our juices flow by gravity and then are naturally released to preserve all their aromas.
Our fermentations engage with the indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks, without temperature control. They take on a different rhythm depending on the character and energy of each wine. In equilibrium, air extraction and a single sulphiting are sufficient for stability. This is followed by lees breeding, kieselguhr filtration, and bottling at the estate.
We reserve our wines to offer their best potential.
