Goldert of Gueberschwihr

The Goldert of Gueberschwihr is the only locality in Alsace where the geological substratum is composed solely of marine oolithic limestone. The soil of this Grand Cru is deep and relatively rich and fertile. The altitude of the Goldert is between 250m and 350m, the slope of average gradient is oriented east, south-east and enjoys an appreciable amount of sunshine of around 1370 hours from April to September. The village of Gueberschwihr benefits from late maturation always guaranteeing wines with well balanced acidity.
Traditionally, a lot of gew├╝rztraminer and muscat were planted on the Goldert, which has a reputation for producing wines, in all vintages, with great finesse, lots of body and a slightly less pronounced bouquet. Our Domaine produces very little muscat and gew├╝rztraminer. The muscat is made up of 20% ottonel and 80% muscat Alsace (small grapes).
