› The vintage

In 2019, our harvesters, bins and tractors found their way to the fields to begin picking Crémant grapes on the 5th of September. The AOC Alsace harvest began a few days later the 12th September.
August rains (45 mm in 3 days!) were a blessing and the grapes ripened perfectly while keeping a lovely rich acidity.
Using slow fermentations kept the complexity and character of each terroir. The quality of the 2019 wines is top notch.

calcareous clay soil

› Vinification

Harvested at perfect ripeness, our destemmed Pinot Noir grapes are cold macerated briefly. As with our white wines, we keep only the heart of each press to preserve the fruity aromas. The fermentation continues in stainless steel tanks until bottling in the Springtime.
