    Cuvée presentation

    The Riesling grapes which form this cuvée are grown in a terroir unique in Alsace, with its black schist soil. Made for ten years' keeping, this Riesling is remarkable for the power and refinement of its aromas, and for its mineral character. This is a wine which will benefit from being served with slightly iodine dishes.

    Information about domain Marc Kreydenweiss

    Domain Marc Kreydenweiss is a family affair: it was originally created by Marc Kreydenweiss, who then passed the reins over to his son Antoine, seconded by his wife Charlotte and daughters Zoé, Lilou and Léonie. At the foothills of the Vosges, the estate has a wide variety of soils, spans 13.5 hectares and owns four Grands Crus. The vineyard has been farmed biodynamically since 1999 and natural vinifications allow the terroir to shine through in all its typicity and character. We particularly appreciate their refined, concentrated wines which are energized by a nice acidity.
