The Late Harvest and Noble Grape Selections come from grapes harvested when over-ripe and affected by noble rot, which is called Botrytis cinerea. Present on the berries, the latter initiates a phenomenon of evaporation inside the grape and thus promotes the concentration of sugar and aromas, bringing softness and power to these wines.
On the gigantic canvas represented by the vineyards of Alsace, among our terroirs as varied as a painter's palette of colours, among our noblest grape varieties, he is a Friend. Time, with patience and concentration; Time with cool, damp mornings and sun-drenched afternoons; our Friend Time allows deep and complex vintages to be born on our land. Considering the colour of the wine in our glasses, these vintages are comparable to nuggets that our passionate winemakers let erode in the sun up to two or three months after the first harvest for the greatest pleasure of the senses.
