Description of the Terroir : The «Clos des Aubépines» is a very particular soil which is brown with a granitic substrate (granitic composition - mica, quartz and feldspaths).
It is a composition of eruptive rocks that crack and crumble to shape rough sand (called granitic arena) with light water retention. The granite degradation level is quite advanced, which allows the release of mineral elements.
This terroir offers lively, expressive and acidulous' wines. They are very delicate and often go along with a sensation of salinity on finish.
Harvest and Vinification: Hand pickings with grape sorting and selection. Destem and transfer into maceration tank for an alcoholic fermentation of 10 to 20 days. Slow and progressive pressing and then a malolactic fermentation (transformation of malic acid to lactic acid). Growing on thin sediments up to 15 months. Bottling into an Alsace flute and use of a long cork allowing a better preservation, coeur de liege extra nature (center of cork) no treatment.
