SOIL : A water-retaining subsoil of Keuper, marl, dolomite and gypsum, overlaid with fine layers of quaternary siliceous gravel,.
VINEYARD : Situated to the north of Riquewihr, the vineyard runs along the rather steep south and south-east flanksof the Schoenenbourg hillside, at an altitude of 265 to 380 metres.
TASTING NOTE : A deep, rich herby nose displays sweet, lime-edged fruit. There’s some smoky depth, and hints of honey. The palate is concentrated and full, with the medium sweet fruit framed by good acidity and a minerality..
AGEING POTENTIAL : 10-20 years
David’s notes: “On limestone, clay, gypsum, diverse soils. Powerful, savoury, and vinous. All about texture and structure. Juicy acidity. Lovely weight. Ages in bottle slowly. Saline edge to the fruit.”
