"The Schlossberg grand cru site is a monopole of 2.5 ha, on a 4m thick of loass. 75 years old vines which they replace with mass-selection plant material when vines die.
Hint of linseed oil. A stormy wine with real clench and grip; complex and contradictory. Violets and iron, mithril and citrus; flowers carved from graphite, and through the center line, a piercing arrow of acidity. As if the wine had been shot by an archer. Deeply gleaming with tension, strength and tenacity." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 17.5 points

The grapes for our Schlossberg are gently pressed by horizontal wooden presses involving intense manual labour.  The Schlossberg’s typical aroma of green citrus fruit combined with a scent of ripe, exotic fruit is becoming considerably more complex and versatile in higher qualities.
