Appellation d'origine contrôlée
This Gewurztraminer is located in the south / south-east, facing the slopes of Bergheim where the soil is strongly calcareous. The marly and calcareous residues on the surface allow this naturally late variety to mature evenly, even during the dry summer period. Thanks to the soil, the 2020 harvest, anticipated throughout Alsace, here was almost in line with the previous vintages, giving even better wines than the 2019 harvest. The cool days of early June also lengthened the flowering period and then resettle the time of collection. In its first two years in the bottle floral scents predominate, while with the passing of the years in the bottle the fantastic mineral scents given by the calcareous soil take over. Traditionally it is enjoyed as an aperitif, with cheeses with an intense flavor, or with desserts. However, giving it time and therefore maturity, it goes perfectly with lobster. Gewurztraminer is very pleasant if tasted young, but has an excellent aging potential (from 10 to 15 years in the best years). As a note, we remind you that Alsace represents an excellence of French wine, but it is also the record holder for the greenest region in the country. The numbers speak for themselves: 10% of the surfaces are treated with sexual confusion (a technique that suppresses the use of insecticides), 25% of the surfaces are certified BIO to which is added a 50% in the course of Haute Valeur certification Environmental level 3.
