A dry white wine produced from several sites near the winery in Turckheim. Biodynamic in both vineyard and winery, this wine ferments naturally over many months in large old oak casks, and is bottled in the summer following the harvest.
This was a near perfect harvest in terms of overall ripeness, plentiful sunshine, several well-timed rains, and minimal disease pressures. The harvest began quite early on August 25th and was completed by September 15th. There were no late harvest wines produced in 2020.
This wine exhibits a pale gold/green color. The nose is already very expressive and displays beautiful aromatics (citrus, fresh fruits, verbena) but conveys also a sense of serious structure and ageability. This is a very dry wine showing a ripe saline acidity and quite a zesty finish that balances the relative power of this wine. This enjoyable wine should also age very well, there is no rush to drink it immediately.
