Personality: Gewurztraminer’s aromatics and fruitiness are lifted by pleasant sparkle – refreshing balance!

Vineyard: Loess, loamy-limestone. Farmed biodynamically by Stéphane & co. themselves. The average age of vines is 45 years.

Making of: The grapes are hand-harvested and gently, slowly pressed as whole bunches. Debourbage, spontaneous fermentation in tanks, racked once. About a year later, the wine is bottled under crown caps with the addition of grape must and natural yeast for refermentation in bottles. Unfiltered, undisgorged, little bit of sulfur at bottling.

Winemaker's Note: This “Little folly” was born at a time (2015) when making sparkling wine with Gewurztraminer was considered crazy in Alsace – but Stéphane wasn’t afraid to marry the grape’s aromatic richness with a little fizz, and the delicious results have proven him right!
