Grape: Pinot Gris
100% Pinot Gris hand-harvested from vines grown in marl-limestone soils around Mittelbergheim in addition to the limestone-based Grand Cru Zotzenburg site as well as the sandstone-based Stierkopf site in nearby Mutzig. The grapes are whole-bunch macerated and spontaneously fermented over the course of 14 days in large oak foudres during which time there is a minimal amount of sulfur added. Élevage sur lie lasts 7 months, also in foudre. Bottled unfined and lightly filtered, with no additional sulfur.
Beautiful cranberry color with intense aromatic complexity and balanced acidity, with a medium-length finish.
