Description

Details

This small co-operative, founded in 1954, has 110 members and 200 hectares of vineyard in the Haut-Rhin, nine kilometres from Colmar. Winemaker Nicolas Garde started at the winery in 2004 and his influence continues to be seen in the way the wines improve with each vintage.

Vineyards
Grapes for the Pinot Gris Réserve are grown in vineyards running along the south and south-east facing hillside slopes of Hunawihr, at an altitude of 250-320 metres. The vineyards cover an area of 36 hectares, over a calcareous clay soil. Yields are the equivalent of 80 hectolitres per hectare and the average age of the vines is 25 years old.

Vinification
Grapes for this Pinot Gris were taken from selected small plots from the Hunawihr vineyards. Temperature controlled fermentation took place between 16-18°C for three weeks, followed by four months in stainless steel tanks to settle before being filtered carefully. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place.

Tasting Notes
