A Unique Parcel the diversity of our soils

01 Granites

Located on the sides of the Vosges mountains, they are composed of eruptive or magmatic rocks which crack and disintegrate to form a coarse sand called granitic arena.

02 Limestones

In Alsace, it is limestone of marine origin from the secondary era. These rocks disintegrate easily to give way to very stony soils. the wines are always marked by a beautiful acid structure, broad and massive.

03 Clayey

Clay is the essential component of these soft but compact rocks, always giving heavy and greasy soils. The wines from these terroirs have a powerful structure and take a long time to blossom.

04 Marno-sandstone

This is the sandstone variant of the marl-limestone terroir. It is still tertiary scree whose pebbles are this time sandstone. Marl gives power to the wine while sandstone lightens it.

Situation of the Terroir and Grands Crus

  • Sommerberg

    The grand cru Sommerberg is located in Niedermorschwihr in the extension of the summit of Galtz (730m). Facing south on an open valley. The relief is characterized by a succession of three amphitheatres separated by outcrops of bedrock. The hillside is planted up to the summit (400 m) and its southern exposure on a very steep slope makes it very sunny. The soil is characterized by significant stoniness over a depth varying from 25 to 80 cm.
  • Brand

    This slope inclined at 45° overlooks the town of Turckheim. The Brand terroir is precocious and warm. It consists of fractured granite. It is this rock composed of quartz, feldspar and mica called Turckheim granite that gives Brand its identity. On this ancestral base stretches over a surface of 57 ha, quite steep slopes which climb to an altitude of 380m facing SOUTH, SOUTH-EAST.
  • Wineck Schlossberg

    A blend of two different parcels of Gewurztraminer on this hillside overlooking the commune of Katzenthal. This stony terroir facing south and south-east turns out to be sunny, steep, warm and early-ripening. Its soil, composed of little earth (20 to 50 cm) rests on a granitic source rock (2 Micas from Turckheim) which is highly disintegrated. It heats up quickly and is rich in various mineral elements.
  • Florimont

    The hillside of Florimont is located mainly on the ban of Ingersheim and for a small part on the ban of Katzenthal. In an advance of the hills under the Vosges, on a substrate of Bathonian and Bajocian limestone covered below by conglomerates and Oligocene marls. It has south and south-east slopes between 250 and 280m above sea level overlooked by a Natura2000 classified forest for fauna and flora.
  • Pfoeller

    At the crossroads between the granitic Grand Cru of Sommerberg and the limestone Grand Cru of Florimont is the place called Pfoeller in the municipality of Katzenthal. It is detached from the Vosges massif and forms a circus open to the south with an average slope. Light clay-limestone slopes from the pinched secondary between the Muschelkalk to the west and the Bajocian to the east, facing south.

Observe and respect The Stakes and the Maintenance of the Terroir

maintenance

It is a natural fact, the maintenance and care of the land are a permanent occupation in the hope of collecting a promising harvest and obtaining a final result that meets our requirements.

Observe

A terroir and its geological specificity requires attention from the winegrower to offer the culture its full deployment.

For a plot to be unique, it must be ploughed, digged and grassed up to the foot of the vines.

The maneuver of a short pruning makes it possible to obtain controlled yields and quality.

Guyot-Poussard

All of our plots were planted in the “1960s / 1970s”.

Cut

This specific pruning therefore makes it possible to sublimate the vines and obtain better harvests, in particular on the old vines.

It also allows the perpetual renewal of the vines and the long-term preservation of the productive vine. Pruning favors the manifestation of young and vigorous growth. A properly pruned and well-maintained vine stock can last for sixty years.

Achieve

Implicitly, in compliance with the specifications of organic farming, small yields are preferred. Thus, each terroir of our unique parcel, by its exposure and its inclination, is the corollary of wines of character.

Respect for the Vine

Thus time passes, and with each new season, on all the plots we supplement young plans. The usual term for performing this task is complantation. That is to say, to avoid the withering of the soil. Dead feet are pulled out and replaced. It is in autumn that we uproot and in spring that we plant the young shoots.

Évolution

Nowadays, the vagaries of the weather and certain diseases weaken the vineyard, for example with Esca disease.
