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.


2013: a vintage low in quantity but great in quality!

This year was charaterized by a long winter, cool and humid. These climatic conditions have delayed the bud break around the end of April. The coolness of May slowed sharply the bloom in mid-June. This delay in the vineyard favored the phenomenon of coulure and put in jeopardy the potential crop.
In the first half of the year, delays had been overtaken by extreme heat during July and August, even generating water stress in some areas.
September was marked by ideal weather conditions, thus improving vine health. Thanks to the combination of high levels of acidity of the grapes and a slow evolution of sugars, the harvest started in mid-September for Cremant and at the end of the month for the rest of varieties. The weather was slightly unpredictable during October, with alternation of dry, very sunny and rainy periods. The sudden drop of temperatures in mid-October limited the development of rot but slowed the grape maturity in sugar.
Thanks to our valiant team of pickers, we managed to get into our cellars a beautiful 2013 crop: low yields (45 hl / ha) but high quality. No Late Harvest, nor Sélection de Grains Nobles were harvested this year.
In 2013, we picked for the first time, a very small amount of Gewurztraminer from a vineyard planted between the two Wold Wars on the historical plot of the Clos des Trois Chemins at Mittelwihr. According to a geo-pedological study of the Sorbonne during the 1960s, this plot is one of the two best terroirs of Gewurztraminer in Alsace.
The important levels of acidity combined with low pH have favored long fermentations. They ended in late June. 2013 is undoubtedly a vintage with great acidity and freshness, offering a very good potential for aging.
