Information
 


Domaine Gerard Schueller is located in Husseren Les Chateaux, a few kilometers south-west of Colmar, Alsace. Gerard and Bruno Schueller work on 7 hectares. Bruno Schueller joined wine-making in 1982. They own land on Grands Crus that are split between Eguisheim and Husseren-les-Chateaux, namely Pfersigberg and Eichberg. However, the most interesting terroir may be Bildstœcklé. This lieu-dit is within the commune of Obermorschwihr, the southern neighbour of Eguisheim.

Today Bruno Schueller produces around 25 different cuvees every year. And tailoring of each cuvees are different every year. Bruno brings out maximum potential of combination of grape variety, terroir and weather of each vintages. As a result, style and taste of same wine(same grape variety from same vineyards) is not a same every year. That's why many people try to chase his wine every year although it is not easy to get his wine.



The icon of Vin Nature does not produce Vin Nature.

Gerard and Bruno Schueller has managed their vineyards by biodynamie and never used herbicide nor chemical fertiliser for several decades, but they do not have intention to apply for the formal certification. Although Bruno is very open and positive to share his experience and philosophy with other sincere producers, he does not belong to any group or association.

Bruno Schueller is very independant-minded and says their wine-making must be free to make the wine they want. He prefers to stay free from strict frames of biodynamie, and keep flexibility to adapt to different situations to make best wine.

Bruno says “I don’t think that I’m producing Vin Nature. Because wine cannot be born spontaneously. Collaboration of artisanal elaborateness and nature creates high quality wine”. Rather he prefer to call his wines as "Vin Libre". Nevertheless the wine of Gerard Schueller is definitely a model of Vin Nature. Bruno makes wines with minimum intervention. Zero or a minimum of sulphur is added during the vinification, the primary fermentation is allowed to reduce the residual sugar to a bare minimum, and Bruno opens up for malolactic fermentation. The result is characteristic, golden, aromatic wines with superb purity, dense, lively, and dry finish with profound minerality. - Drink it with an open mind.

The wines are not always in line with what is seen as typical for varietal wines of Alsace. In fact sometimes the wines of Bruno Schueller do not pass the sensory tests of INAO. However, this does not seem to worry Bruno. Tiny volume of his wines are in great demand from the most advanced enthusiastic drinkers and he is adored by many of “vin nature” producers all over the world.
