IDENTITY

The Grand Cru Schlossberg was the first terroir in Alsace to be classified as a "Grand Cru". It stretches over a south-facing terraced hillside between Kientzheim and Kaysersberg and owes its reputation to the geological nature of its soil made up of granitic rocks and sandy-silt soil. The richness and diversity of the minerals encountered determine the finesse and multiplicity of the aromas.

WINEMAKING

Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by a minimum 6 months maturing on lees, without malolactic fermentation. It then rests patiently for at least a year before being sold.

Yellow gold

Notes of smoke, dried apricot, then a fresher opening on the yellow peach with a hint of caramel.

Nice round amplitude. The structure is based on a straight acidity, so typical of the Schlossberg, which gives it a nice length on the finish.

Pinot Gris Grand Cru Schlossberg: greatness and elegance, a call for tasting!
