Our next wine tasting!

Celebrate German Riesling with us on Sat 20th July

Julien Schaal Rosacker Riesling Grand Cru Calcaire

Complex, taut and mineral with some spice, apricot, lime and pear. A hint of tangerine, and lovely tingling acidity. Great complexity and balance.

All the grapes comes exclusively from Alsace grand Cru classified vineyards. All picked by hand, the grapes are carefully sorted and gently goes to the pneumatic press. A long pressing of a minimum of 12 hours is necessary to extract the best juice possible without pushing to far.

After decantation at low temperature, the juice start a long alcoholic fermentation that can take up to 4 months.
No sulphur is added before the next spring and this to let the wine to open up as much as possible. The result is a wine with less sensitivity to oxidation and much more aromatic.

Producer Profile 

Alsace wine region has a unique combination of great soils types that forms a real   ‘kaleidoscope” of geologies. Pink sandstone, blue schist, limestone, granite, gypsum and volcanic rocks are amongst the most interesting soil.  We can find all of them on grand cru vineyards. We believe that Riesling is maybe the best variety to translate those characters into wines.

In 2011, Olivier Biecher and I have launched the winery exclusively dedicated to Alsace Grands Crus wines. From Andlau to Thann, we found numbers of interesting vineyards that all have strong individual character.
