Description from the Winery
The estate is located in Andlau, Alsace, halfway between Strasbourg and Colmar, in the Piedmont region of the Vosges. Nestled at the foot of the mountains, the vineyard benefits from a continental climate and shares a mosaic of completely opposite soils in their geology: pink sandstone of the Vosges (Grand Cru Wiebelsberg), black schist (Grand Cru Kastelberg), blue schist (Clos du Val d 'Eléon and Clos Rebberg), and marno-calcaro-sandstone (Grand Cru Moenchberg).
Marc Kreydenweiss has passed on his passion for wine, terroirs and biodynamics to his children. Antoine Kreydenweiss took over the reins of the Alsatian vineyard in 2007, accompanied by Charlotte, their daughters Zoé, Lilou and Léonie, from the team and his Chevalier Comtois. Together they display the same passion: produce wines with a personality by highlighting the soul of each of its soils.
The Estate comprises 13.5 hectares of vines, including the 3 Grand Crus of Andlau: Wiebelsberg, Moenchberg and Kastelberg. Another great vintage: Barr's Kirchberg joined the diverse panel of the estate.
The winemaker uses each year a different artist to illustrate the labels. By uniting the creativity of the artist and the know-how of the winemaker, each bottle is transformed into a unique piece.
Going into this wine, this is a big Old World, traditional style Alsatian white. It is a mix of different Alsatian terroirs. This wine represents the diversity of Alsace, and a great definition as such.
