Appellation:

Alsace

Locality:

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 2014 vintage:

After a short winter break, the growing cycle started exceptionally early beginning of April under very dry conditions (16 and 26 mm of rain in March resp. April). The few May precipitations allowed the initial development of the vines. The flowering took place in June under nice and sunny conditions. Some rain came in July and allowed a good development of the grapes. A relatively fresh month of August helped to maintain the acidities in the fruits during the maturation process. The harvest started mi September under ideal weather conditions with only 35 mm avec the 4 weeks of harvest.
