Grand Cru Marckrain : land of Gewurztraminer

Gewurztraminer is mainly cultivated on this terroir. With a very good constitution, full-bodied, aromatic and powerful, Marckrain Gewurztraminer presents a perfect harmony. One can also find the Pinot Gris, giving a wine with a fine and discreet fruitiness, embalmed with typical aromas of the terroir.
