- Collection / Reserve wines that are a true reflection of the 7 traditional Alsace grape varieties. They are fresh, structured, elegant wines made from hand-picked grapes, and provide the perfect introduction to classic Alsace wines, without too much complexity.
- The Named Place wines are made from low yields from small, well-exposed ‘terroirs’, providing an excellent range of wines midway between varietal wines and Grands Crus.The entire harvest is hand-picked, with very careful selection of healthy grapes.They are the leading expression of the Alsace ‘terroirs’.
- The Grands Crus are the quintessence of the best ‘terroirs’ in Alsace. They are gourmet wines par excellence.The “Alsace Grand Cru” appellation is given to outstanding ‘terroirs’ that give wines a particular strength of expression and authenticity.The grapes are hand-picked, carefully selected and brought whole to the reception area in tubs known as ‘botiches’ The grapes are treated with the greatest care before being delicately, slowly pressed.
- The Exception range is a micro-vinification: the grapes come from a very meticulous parcel selection and vinification is carried out Burgundy-style. The Pinot Noir macerates in small 1,000- litre tanks and is then matured in barrels (30% of which are new) for 12 months. After pressing, some of the Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris is put in barrels for alcoholic fermentation and a 12-month ageing process to combine the aromas of the grape variety with the complexity gained from the wood. After gentle filtering, the wine is bottled and is not sold until it has matured for 12 to 18 months.
