Our grands crus come from privileged terroirs where the geology, the climate and the exposure form an exceptional combination
All the plots have been biodynamic since 1998, in order to express the exceptional personality of our wines.
The 4 Grands Crus and the correspondences with the elements:
In order to associate an image easy to understand by all, we have chosen to name the wines from our 4 Grands Crus:
Kitterlé, Saering, Spiegel and Kessler by the 4 elements, Earth, Water, Air, Fire.
Indeed, we find singularities between each of these places and the elements that constitute the universe.
We recognize here the influence of Water on this terroir.
The wines from this place are juicy, salivating, broad, dense, with volume and great power.
Instinctively we know that the Fire element is strongly linked to the Kessler, a solar terroir, a fruitful vine that ripens its grapes well.
The roots are intimately linked to the Earth element. Thus, the earth element provides the vine with the anchor through which it can develop.
The wines from the Kitterlé have a smoky glow, purity, a delicate structure, verticality, linear tension, youthful fringing and a well-balanced structure.
This marl and sandstone place naturally recalls the association of the element Air, invisible par excellence, always in movement and light.
The wines born from the Spiegel, reveal themselves to be airy, fine, elegant, frivolous, flattering, less rooted in the earth. Great noble bitters carry the length of these wines.
