The idea is to capture the originality of each terroir and of each grape variety to inscribe it into the wine.

We possess a great diversity of terroir, all are geologically different which permits us to obtain a large variety of flavours and characters.


2012: a vintage with capricious weather!

The 2012 vintage was marked by a very dry winter and some relatively warm temperatures. February, fresher and then milder, made the bud burst start at the end of March. Then low temperatures in April and May, delayed the flowering to the end of May and staggering during June. Cold and humid weather raised our fears of a risk of coulure. Luckily, we were not affected. June and July recorded much higher levels of rainfall than average for the season. A hot and dry weather in August has improved the health conditions of the vineyard. In late August, high temperatures, even scorching, plunged the vineyard into a water stress, especially for the younger vines.
September was more mild, moderate with some relatively cool temperatures, favoring a steady maturation of the grapes.
The harvest began in mid-September with perfect health conditions and good acidity levels. The harvest was long because it was interrupted by rainstorms in mid-October and ended around the 3rd week of October. No Late Harvest and Selection de Grains Nobles have been harvested this year because the weather and the health conditions of the grapes were not met. We also harvested for the first time, a new plot of Riesling located on the Grand Cru Sporen, in Riquewihr. The combination of a terroir made of clay-marl and a vineyard aged over 80 years will reveal wines of great complexity, both deep and elegant, with a great potential for aging.
2012 showcases aromatic wines, charming and delicious, full-bodied and fresh.
