Appellation d'origine contrôlée
This Gewurztraminer is located to the south/south-east, facing the slopes of Bergheim where the soil is strongly calcareous. The marl and limestone residues on the surface allow this naturally late-ripening variety to ripen evenly. Thanks precisely to the well-drained soil, the 2021 vintage, which was very poor in quantity compared to previous ones, was saved from the frost and damage that heavy rainfall brought in other areas, and benefited from the beautiful autumn days to reach full ripeness. In its first two years in the bottle, the floral aromas are predominant, while as the wine ages in the bottle, the fantastic mineral hints given by the limestone soil take over. Traditionally, it is enjoyed as an aperitif, with intensely flavoured cheeses, or with desserts. However, given time and thus maturity, it goes perfectly with lobster. Gewurztraminer is very pleasant when enjoyed young, but has excellent ageing potential (10 to 15 years in its best vintages). As a reminder, Alsace is an excellence of French wine, but it also holds the record for the country's greenest region. 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 BIO certified to which is added a further 50% in the process of Haute Valeur Environnementale level 3 certification.
