Wines of a place

The Origines wines are the testimony of the expression of a place in its most singular way, transcribed in the bottle with the sole influence of the Alsatian micro-climate.

Selection of different predominantly granitic and marl-limestone plots on the steep and sunny terroirs of Niedermorschwihr, Katzenthal, Turckheim and Ingersheim.

Harvested by hand, gentle pressing for six hours to preserve the aromatics of the grapes. Natural fermentation in hundred-year-old oak barrels. Aging on fine lees for one winter before bottling in the summer.

Riesling lieu-dit Pfoeller 2021

This bottle bears witness to the expression of the Lieu-dit Pfoeller with the sole influence of the Alsatian microclimate.

Located on a zone of faults, this clay-limestone soil is composed of Muschelkalk to the west and Bajocien to the east and overlooks the town of Ingersheim.

This wine is made up of several plots, the “Erdhauser” planted in 1976 and the “Redhauser” planted in 1992.

Harvested manually, the grapes ferment naturally thanks to indigenous yeasts. Aging on lees takes place for almost a year in century-old oak barrels.

Pinot Gris Cuvée de l'Ange 2020

Emblematic cuvée of the Justin Boxler family.
Grapes from the finest plots of the estate on granite soils.
Wine of gluttony and pleasure.
The wines are ready to drink within 10 years after bottling.

Its color is a deep yellow.
On the nose it is toasted with aromas of white flowers.
The attack is ample with a nice freshness.
At the end of the mouth, the minerality in association with the gluttony prevails.

Gewurztraminer Soixante-cinq 2020

This is the oldest plot of our vineyard, planted in 1965.
These Gewurztraminer feet perfectly resist the years as well as the various hazards.
Its deep roots give this wine a most interesting aromatic concentration. 2019, a cooler year, marks all the more this balance between freshness and the delicacy of the grape variety.

Harvested by hand, the grapes are gently pressed for 6 hours to preserve their aromas. Vinification is done by gravity and aging on fine lees in hundred-year-old oak barrels before bottling in the summer.
