Biodynamically farmed Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois grapes from flatter (but slightly South-exposed) vineyards on iron-rich clayey soils outside of Andlau. Hand-harvest, slow pressing of whole bunches, natural fermentation in old Alsatian foudres without additives, aging on the lees for up to a year, bottled lightly filtered with a touch of sulfites.
Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss
Antoine Kreydenweiss is the producer of many a staff favorite here at Chabrol-HQ, ever since he took over the Alsatian domain of his father Marc, a famous pioneer in biodynamic viticulture. From the sleepy village of Andlau Antoine operates this esteemed Domaine with terroir-diverse holdings in the surrounding hills, among which the three Grand Cru’s Kastelberg, Wiebelsberg, and Moenchberg. No fan of rich-but-electric, lip-smackingly salty white wines that wear terroir rather than variety on their sleave should miss these often very age-worthy wines.
