Grand Cru Schlossberg was the first lieu-dit to achieve "Grand Cru" status in Alsace. The vines are plated on hillside terraces, facing due south overlooking Kientzheim and Kaysersberg. The reputation of this terroir owes much to its light, well-drained soils, as well as the granite substrate into which the vines plunge their deep roots. This unique geological profile is reflected in the elegant minerality of the wines produced here.
Splendid, pale gold colour. The nose, with a certain youthful restraint, opens with fresh fruit aromas led by peach and mirabelle plum. A hint of indulgent sweetness follows, with echoes of marzipan. Full-bodied and lively on the palate, framed by the textured acidity associated with this terroir. A bold structure, softened by the tender aromatic profile. Hints of brioche, while the fresh fruit flavours crescendo to a finish capped off with a dash of candied citrus zest.
Perfect with pan-fried foie gras, and fish or poultry dishes in creamy sauces.

Grand Cru Schlossberg looks out over the Kaysersberg Valley. The steep gradients of the granite hillsides obliged our ancestors to carve out the terraces which have become an iconic feature of this valley. This was the first Alsatian lieu-dit to achieve "Grand Cru" status in 1975.
