› The vintage

A very early harvest with excellent quality and small yields characterize the 2017 vintage.
Following a late spring freeze, the volumes were significantly reduced compared to the 2016 harvest. Excellent weather conditions throughout the summer encouraged full ripeness and the development of ideal acidities needed to create outstanding Alsace wines. Harvest of absolutely perfect grapes began the first week of Sept. In the cellar a few months later, the wines show fabulous, aromatic personalities already. The 2017 vintage will age well so we suggest to pick up extra bottles for aging and enjoying in a couple of years.

Rich, elegant nose that opens to notes of passion fruit and honey. Very creamy and concentrated with a long, well balanced final. Brilliant with foie gras or a fruit based dessert.
