" The nose is fine with notes of mineral and citrus flavors...the mouth is racy and tense with lots of minerality. "- Winery Tasting Notes
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 crushed his first Alsace grapes in 2009. His vineyards around the tiny hamlets of Bernardville and Reichsfeld, cultivated since the Middle Ages when they were developed by Cistercian monks, are situated just southwest of Andlau - the wines being for now vinified in a rented facility in nearby Barr - and include the sole blue slate vein in Alsace, for which the domaine is named. There are currently seven largely contiguous hectares (17 acres) of vines. Chapoutier's right-hands, Pierre-Henri Morel and Guillaume Deschepper, also have responsibilities for operations here, with Jerome Ledit as on-site manager. Vinification is in tank and aging thereafter for the most part in foudre. The 2010s underwent malolactic during the spring following their harvest and were bottled in December, 2011 whereas the 2011s were permitted a second winter in cask. The estate's vines are impressively situated and now being impeccably groomed, inter-planted and expanded (not to mention converted to biodynamic culture) as one would expect given Chapoutier's ambitious practices in other growing regions. It apparently strikes him â as it did me after touring and tasting - that there will be ample room for expansion and excitement just within this little-known sector, without acquiring shares in Bas Rhin vineyards whose reputations are already well-established. Wine was rendered under the Schieferkopf label in 2009 from contract fruit off of the celebrated Kastelberg and Wiebelsberg, but that arrangement was thereafter terminated." - David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
