This wine has an extremely complex fruit (white peach, citrus fruits, melon, green apple and flowers) and the enormous minerality that comes from the pink sandstone floors on which the vines grow and which indulges with smoky tobacco notes to the palate. The gorgeous creamy texture makes this Riesling a „de luxe“ with a fantastic food companion!
Pairing examples: Iberian cured meats and whitefish.
The winery is located in Andlau, in Alsace, between Strasbourg and Colmar, in the area called Piemont des Vosges. Nestled at the bottom of the mountains, the vineyard has the benefice of a continental climate and the soils are based on a mosaic of terroirs which are completely different from each other in term of geology : pink sandstone (g.c. Wibelsberg), black slate (g.c. Kastelberg and blue slate (Clos du Val d'Eléon and Clos Rebberg) and marls and limestone (g.c. Moenchberg).
Marc Kreydenweiss transmitted his passion of the wine, terroirs and biodynamical to his children. Antoine Kreydenweiss took over the management of the vineyard in 2007 who is accompanied by his wife Charlotte, their daughters Zoe, Lilou and Leonie, the whole team and his horse. Together they show the same passion : create wines with personality and reveal soul of each terroir.
The winery covers 13.5 hectares of vineyard, including 3 Grand Crus of Andlau: Wiebelsberg, Moenchberg and Kastelberg. A new grand cru is now part of the terroir diversity of the domaine: the Kirchberg in Barr.
The winemaking is based on natural methods, with the respect of the equilibrium of each wine. Each year the label is illustrated by a different artist, chosen by the winemaker. By combining the creativity of the artist and the knowledge of the winemaker, each bottle becomes unique. The biodynamical is applied since 1989 and is the main part of the activities.
