Organically farmed Pinot Noir from stony soils mainly composed of quartz, based on a ferruginous and alluvial-clayey sub-soil. Hand-harvest, whole-bunch fermentation without additions in old Alsatian foudre, bottled unfiltered with a minimum of added sulfites.
Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss
Antoine Kreydenweiss is the producer of many a staff favourite 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.
