Hagenau, vineyard of old vines located north of Ribeauvillé.

Type of soil :

On a shelf of marls and clay conglomerate from Oligocene, our hills of Hagenau show soils with a combination of silt, clay, and sand. The cracking of the limestone rocks beneath allows good root development and sufficient water reserve for the vines.

Certified organic grapes for an enhanced terroir expression:

Started in 2005, our conversion to organic production took a concrete form three years later in 2008 with the ECOCERT certification. Since 2012, all the cellar operations are also covered by the European specification so that we can now speak about organic wines.

Wine character :

Hagenau is elaborated from co-vinification of four varietals existing in this vineyard. The wine is expressive, with a floral and spicy nose. A dry wine with a velvety palate and a delicate freshness.

Tips for consuming :

Served at a temperature between 8 and 11°C, this dry wine will happily go with exotic dishes, risottos and white meats in delicately spicy sauces, or even cooked cheeses. Due to its fatty and round character, it can even be served in lightly sweetened desserts.

The 2015 vintage:

This vintage follows a mild winter, with almost no frost days. The vines started their development mi-April, a normal date. Spring can be qualified as normal in term of rainfalls but also temperatures. The flowering took place mid-June under good conditions. Beginning of July was exceptionally warm. Some grapes suffered from the sun rays. These warm conditions accelerated the development of the vines. Mid-August some precipitations were welcome and helped the vines to finish their maturation cycle. We started harvesting mature and sound fruit on September 8th.
