Grand Cru Schlossberg was the first lieu-dit to achieve "Grand Cru" status in Alsace. The vines are planted on terraces along the south-facing hillside which runs between Kientzheim and Kaysersberg. Schlossberg owes its character to its unique geological profile, with sandy and silty soils over granite bedrock. This rich array of mineral influences produces wines of superb finesse and aromatic complexity.

Tasting notes

Rich golden robe with excellent legs. The nose opens with smoky notes and a hint of dried apricot, expanding to reveal fresh yellow peach and a delicious touch of caramel. Bold, full-bodied and well-rounded opening on the palate. Structure is provided by the tightly-controlled acidity so typical of Schlossberg, paving the way for a deliciously long finish.

Food-wine pairings

Brings out the best in pan-fried foie gras, and fish or poultry dishes in creamy sauces.

Grandeur and elegance

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.
