"Juicy acidity keeps this creamy white lively, with a leesy note of peach yogurt mixing with flavors of guava, tangerine, blanched almond and candied ginger. Tangy finish. Drink now through 2020. 112 cases imported. -AN" Reviewed November 2014
About the Winery
Michel Chapoutier is passionate about terroir and grape varieties. Alsace has always had a special place in his heart because of the particularity of certain varieties and their mineral subtlety. This vineyard came about by an association of friends and their consensus in exigent working techniques, even on very steep slopes. The vines take their nutritional value from a terroir of blue schist with a touch of sandstone, bringing originality to the wine. Across the Schieferkopf, Michel Chapoutier presents a translation of theses terroirs, reflecting the appellations.
Michel Chapoutier and his friends, listened, observed and scanned the area, finally selecting 5 hectares in the Bernardville area on the only terroir in Alsace made up of blue schist. It is one of the highest vineyards in the region at 380 m with south facing vines. It is said that it was here, in the 12th century, that the Cistercian monks planted vines.The monks made no mistakes when it came to choosing their terrain.
After a long pneumatic pressing, cold static settling of the juice is carried out. The wine is then fermented with indigenous yeasts.
