Golden yellow in colour with topaz reflections. The bouquet is sensual and spicy; gingerbread, vanilla, cinnamon, fine leather. Dried rose, potpourri of dried flowers. Quince, pear, plum and apricot jelly are evident. A touch of bergamot and candied grapefruit. The palate is suave, enveloping and supple, bursting with flavours of fruit (plum and apricot) and candied pineapple. Uplifting vibrant acidity finishes straight, incisive and dynamic with a hint of minerality on the finish.

Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss is located in Andlau, in Alsace, between Strasbourg and Colmar, in the area called Piemont des Vosges. Nestled at the bottom of the mountains, the vineyard benefits from a continental climate and the soils are based on a mosaic of terroirs which are completely different from each other in term of geology; pink sandstone, black slate and blue slate and marls and limestone. Marc Kreydenweiss transmitted his passion of the wine, terroirs and biodynamical to his children. Antoine Kreydenweiss who is accompanied by his wife Charlotte, their daughters Zoe, Lilou and Leonie, the whole team and his horse. Together they show the same passion; create wines with personality and reveal soul of each terroir. The winery covers 13.5 hectares of vineyard, including 3 Grand Crus of Andlau: Wiebelsberg, Moenchberg and Kastelberg. A new grand cru is now part of the terroir diversity of the Domaine; the Kirchberg in Barr. The winemaking is based on natural methods, with the respect of the equilibrium of each wine that they produce.
