Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling

he Schlossberg hillside, at an altitude of 230 to 350 metres, stretches north of Kaysersberg and Kientzheim over the crystalline basement of the Vosges mountains : the Kaysersberg migmatites are metamorphic (granitizised) grauwacke-sandstones and shales from Devonian age. At the northeastern part of the vineyard these rocks are pierced by the intrusive granite of thannenkirch. the acid siliceous soil of excellent fertility is a weathered crystalline scree with some basic inclusions in the area east of the old castle. So the clayey coarse sand is mineral rich : Ca, Na, K, Mg, F, P, and determines the finesse and multiplicity of aromas in the wines. The steepness of the slope means that the Schlossberg must be cultivated in terraces. The 80.28 ha of vineyard are planted principally with Riesling, then with Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Muscat.

Schlossberg wines are characterised by their very fine, richly floral bouquet. Delicate and distinguished, they do not attain their plenitude until after several years in bottle of its wines.
