LES TERROIRS ALSACIENS
LThe Alsatian Region and more specifically the Grand Crus, renowned for centuries, favour the creation of great wines. The substrates in the soil and the different microclimates are typical for each Grand Crus which reveal themselves and leave their print in the wine they produce: an outstanding full body with a remarkable balance. It is essential to acknowledge this heritage in order to associate the most suitable vine stock. Although these grounds make the development of botrytis (noble rot) rare and late, quality is exceptional when it does develop. This brings complexity and balance to the grapes which are highly concentrated, subtly fulfilled by the salinity and acid pattern of theses vintages..
