2018 Achillée Blanc
The Alsace Blanc is composed of Sylvaner (50%), Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, with Auxerrois, Muscat and Chasselas.
The Sylvaner vines used in this cuvée are planted facing West, on flat riverside plains, containing cold, fertile clays (this area used to be the old wharves and embarkation quays for the River Aubach that runs through the village of Scherwiller). The other grape varieties are planted in diverse expositions, in the various other soils types and areas that make up the family’s estate- such as in sandstone or granite soils, two hundred metres high up on the slopes of the local mountain, or on the stony, poor soil that surrounds the village of Scherwiller. The nose is pure with floral notes, accompanied by aromas of apricots and mirabelles. The palate is very elegant with good structure and great persistence.
