The hills of this vineyard are exposed east/south, nestled behind the alsatian mountains, benefiting of maximal sun exposure. The Pfersigberg is composed of marl-limestone soil, with various white/yellowish pebbles of the jurassic era and hard muschelkalk.
Fossils can easily be found in the soil, and in between which can sometimes be found layers of sandstone (yellow sandstone of Rouffach).
Rich in limestone easy to assimilate by the plants, the clay helps to fix micronutrient fertilizers. This forces the roots to dive deeper into the soil in order to find the nutrients they need.
The water retention is average, which causes for the grapes to reach maturity early.
This terroir produces wines of great finesse, powerful, well structured, fat, spicy and with a fantastic ageing potential !
Located south/south-east, at 340 meters in altitude, the Eichberg is naturally protected from rainfalls by the Vosges mountains, and benefits as a result from a dry and hot microclimate.
The clay-limestone based soil is composed of limestone conglomerates and marls-oligocene with boulders remaining from the tertiary age, which can be found among the sandstone pebbles, sometimes resulting in a more siliceous (quartz) soil, quartzite pebbles, white coated marl or sandy clay.
The soil is characterized by good water retention. It is airy and rich in minerals.
It produces powerful wines, with excellent aromatic complexity, well-bodied, and greatly balanced by a refreshing acidity.
Land of choice for the Riesling, the Geisberg is located in Ribeauvillé. With its 8.53 ha, this is one of the smallest Grands Crus in Alsace, but one of the biggest by its terroir !
A soil made of limestone and sandstone marles, rich in mass of fallen rocks and dolomites fragments. Vertiginous slopes allow to elaborate a great Riesling, complex and powerful, with a remarkable delicacy.
Let yourself be tempted by this charming terroir !
Located at the top of the hill overlooking the city of Ingersheim, in an altitude of 250 metres, the Florimont soils are composed of limestone and clay.
