Salmon in colour with orange reflections. The bouquet is powerful and complex; currant, candied orange zest, plum and peach skins, dried pineapple, herbs, bergamot and peppers. The presence of stone gives the bouquet a smoky and camphoric dimension. The palate is big with silky tannins, mineral and spice notes permanently underpin the mouthfeel. Long on the finish with fine bitterness of citrus notes.

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.
