Grands Crus

The Grands Crus the expression of a terroir

Our Grands Crus are the testimony of the expression of a terroir classified in the most singular way. In short, they transcribe in the cellar the only influence of the microclimate specific to our sector of Alsace.

Granite soil

Our vineyard is predominantly granitic, known as “à deux Micas”, it extends due south over steep and very sunny soils. Significant examples such as the exhibitions of Sommerberg in Niedermorschwihr, Brand in Turckheim, Wineck-Schlossberg in Katzenthal. But still, the Florimont hill with its typically Mediterranean flora and fauna on the heights of Ingersheim, and made up of mano-limestone soil.

Maturation on fine lees

It is therefore with a steep slope that our grapes are harvested by hand, and for six hours we collect the subtle aromas by slow and delicate pressing.

Subsequently, the vinification evolves by a natural fermentation under the impetus of indigenous yeasts in century-old oak barrels.

Finally, the aging takes place on fine lees for a year, before bottling in the summer, at the beginning of the new harvest.

On a substrate of Bathonian and Bajocian limestone, this hillside vineyard overlooks the wine-growing town of Ingersheim. This wine is made from a single plot, the “Erdhaus“, partly planted in 1976 and 1992.

Harvested by hand, the grapes are gently pressed for 6 hours to preserve the aromatics. Gravity vinification takes place in century-old oak barrels. This cuvée benefits from aging on fine lees for 9 months before bottling in the summer.
