Product Description

Muenchberg means the “mountain of the monks” and was first planted in the 12th century by the Cistercian monks. We own 2.05Ha of which 1.65Ha are planted with Riesling. Muenchberg is one of the most unique grands crus of Alsace because of its very particular soil of red sandstone and volcanic sediments. It's a wonderful south-facing amphitheatre of vines in a closed valley, in the Vosges foothills, protected to the west by the 901m Ungersberg peak. The altitude ranges between 250 and 300m which prevents excessive heat and helps to keep complexity in the wines. Like all the domaine's vineyard the Riesling vines are farmed using biodynamic principles, and certified organic. We pay particular attention to manual tasks on the vines, because machines may be

This promises some really spicy peaches and apricots, though held in in reserve for now. Some wonderful citrus and flinty accents come through. Medium-bodied, but very minerally indeed; this is like licking white stones. The center palate is ever so precise and the finish is long and complex. Drink or hold. 95 points Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com 

This beautiful south-facing amphitheatre has been planted since the 12th century. André Ostertag’s 1.65ha are vinified to produce a wine blending intensity and elegance, the Riesling’s tension expressed with great purity that will reward the patient. 94 points Decanter Magazine
