Hardly any other grape variety knows how to reproduce the type of vinification as charmingly and precisely as Chardonnay. The grapes of the 2019 vintage were selectively harvested by hand and aged in four different 225L barriques after pressing. French oak, Palatinate oak, American oak and acacia wood create an arc of tension with the minerality and fruit of the grape.
As big Chardonnay aficionados, we especially love reductive varieties that perfectly reflect their soils - and preferably soils that hold proper fossils. As we are located on the banks of the Ice Age Rhine, our vines are rooted in precisely these minerals and we have learned to love them since we were children.
What is most fascinating about this wine is its evolution once opened. Air, warmth and a decent glass create images on the taste buds that make you forget everything.
There are only 700 bottles per vintage that we can vinify in this way. First come, first served!
