The oldest Grand Cru in Alsace

On a granite bedrock of migmatites, the soil is sandy, rich in minerals, quite shallow at higher altitudes (400m), deeper at the bottom (230m). The richness and diversity of the elements which can be found here (potassium, magnesium, fluorine, phosphorus) determine the finesse and the aromatic complexity of the wines. With its steep slopes facing south, the Schlossberg demands terraced viticulture.

As a renowned terroir, its qualities were recognised as of the XVth century. It was the first terroir of Alsace to be classed as a Grand Cru through the decree law of 1975. As of 1928, the winegrowers of Kientzheim and Kaysersberg had registered all the natural production constraints in a written agreement, which was followed unanimously, and has been since then consecrated by the decree laws on Alsatian Grand Crus.

An excellent granite soil

The Schlossberg is an exceptional terroir for Riesling, on which it bestows a pure expression, a fine structure and remarkable finesse.

Most of our Rieslings are from the Schlossberg, apart from our Riesling Cuvée Théo, originating from the Clos des Capucins.

Our Schlossberg cuvées, lively and elegant, come from the upper part of the hill, where the soils are very shallow. Our Cuvée Colette emerges from the lower part, creating wines that are full and ample.

Our Riesling Schlossberg Cuvée Sainte Catherine and « L’Inédit ! », from 60 year old vines on mid-slope, illustrate the magnificence of this terroir.
