Description

"Floral, and fruit forward. Hand harvested vines averaging 30 years in age with clay and limestone soil. Aged 10 months in Oak casks."

"Young Christophe Scherer, taking over from his father Andre, is quickly establishing the name of this domaine. He makes rich, yet subtle wines. They offer a superb example of a third style to complement Schoffit’s intensity and Mann’s delineation. Christophe works entirely with Oak for his fermentations; large tonneau for the Pinot Blanc, Tokay and Gewürztraminer, and barrique for the Vieilles Vignes cuvées of Tokay, Auxerrois, and Pinot Noir. He is, in my experience, one of the most deftly gifted of any winemaker in Alsace with the use of barriques." -Importer
