Production note

The Domaine still runs on very traditional lines: they are often one of the last families in Alsace to pick their grapes, looking not for sweetness but rather weight and concentration. Minimum levels of interference during the fermentation, using natural yeasts. Stainless steel fermentation but at slightly warmer temperatures than the norm which gives the wine character. With the exception of the top cuvee of Pinot Noir, everything is matured in huge, old wooden barrels and inox.
