Semi-dry wine; powerful and elegant; reserved and charming, fruity and mineral, a wine like an oxymoron!
This wine comes from the Burg Terroir, from our Bergheim vineyard, whose geology (mixed Keuper marls with rare calcareous intercalations) and climate (full southern exposure, protected location in the rear of the valley) enable to produce, year after year, a great, complex and well-structured wine made for ageing. This wine is produced from wonderful, traditional Alsatian vines planted in accordance with our ancient vine-growing tradition. This wine has borne for a long time the name of « gentil ».
Tasted in the dark:
Seaweeds and iodine (warm oysters, caviar, lobster, spiny lobster). Foie gras in terrine or pan-fried. Sweet and savory cuisine (duck breast with mangoes). Blue cheeses.
Field-blending of all Alsatian grapes.
A full-bodied, semi-dry, rich and powerful wine.
10 to 15 years.
Colorful Keuper marl with rare interbedded limestone. Full southern exposure, sheltered location set back from the valley. Cool climate: rather late harvest.
