This beautiful sunny hillside is located in the municipality of Ingersheim, near Ammerschwihr.
This Riesling seems born for the fans of dry and racy wines.
This wine will accompany shellfish, crustaceans, oysters, salmon, bar ... but also Alsatian dishes such as sauerkraut.
This pinot gris is powerful, opulent, endowed with a great aromatic finesse and longevity out of the common.
It is perfectly accompanied by fine, sweet and savory dishes (mango fried liver), foie gras, a cassolette of snails with morels, desserts (mirabelle tart or apricots).
The Wineck-Schlossberg vineyard is oriented south and south-east, between 280 and 400m above sea level, protected from the prevailing winds, Microclimate very favorable. The disintegrated granitic substrate gives rise to light soils rich in mineral elements, allowing an early maturity of the grapes. The Grands Crus of the Wineck Schlossberg are typically distinctive wines, very characteristic of the best wines of Alsace. The nature of the soil gives them their fruity, their aromas and an incomparable floral character.
A rare wine from an exceptional terroir cultivated in biodynamics. This wine can be appreciated now for its freshness and vivacity, but its potential for custody will be up to 10 years.
This wine will accompany with pleasure the fishes of sea and river ... but also the Alsatian dishes such as the trout with the blue, or even a filet of pikeperch on bed of sauerkraut.
The name of this terroir appears for the first time in the cadastre of the Abbey of Pairis in Ammerschwihr in 1338. It is then repeatedly quoted in various works of the 19 and 20th centuries.
In the heart of the Alsatian vineyard south of Ammerschwihr, there are several hills under Vosges at an altitude of 240 to 320 meters. Wonderfully sunny, this land of 71.65 hectares produces fine wines of great finesse which are the pride of our house.
Mainly granite slopes (granite migmatite of Kaysersberg, granite at 2 micas of Turckheim) flush with the piedmont partially masked by Quaternary formations of various origins. The Kaefferkopf benefits from the Ammerschwihr microclimate created by an important foehn effect which maintains high pressures in a low pressure environment, especially in spring and autumn. It produces well-structured, balanced and elegant wines, aromatic finesse with beautiful acidity.
To the south of the village of Bennwihr, when leaving the Kaysersberg valley, the Marckrain vineyard sits on the famous Route des Vins between 200 and 300m in altitude. It benefits from a very favourable south-east exposure and a notable Colmar-specific microclimate. The terroir of 53.35ha is made of Oligocene-epoch coastal conglomerate. The soil is marl-limestone with mostly Oolithic limestone pebbles with interbedded marl.
Here it’s Gewurztraminer which rules. One can also find the Alsace Pinot Gris.
This Pinot Gris opens with notes of candied and roasted fruits such as pear. It possesses a very beautiful richness in sugar, a sign of the high maturities that this Grand Cru allows.
Its generous and honeyed structure coats the mouth and finds a subtle balance by the presence of a melted and chiselled freshness which thus allows this wine to keep a pleasant digestibility.
