Marls and clay - Dry, velvety with tension

Caractère du vinSec




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 between 8°C and 11°C this wine will be a perfect pairing with exotic dishes, fish, white meat with delicate spicy sauce and fresh cheese. Ample and dry, it can be served all along the meal.

The 2016 vintage:

After a mild but humid winter, the reserves in ground water could be regenerated.
The vines started their development on a normal date mid-april. The fruit potential was great but a high pressure of diseases due to heavy rainfalls reduced it significantly. Thanks to a very dry and hot summer the remaining grapes could be preserved under very good conditions.
Finally, the 2016 wines show good maturity with great tension.
