A declassified selection from the winery’s steep slope, slate dominated Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) parcels. These south facing vineyards, most nestled in the West end of the valley, have mature root systems of 15-25m. The slate maintains heat, a blessing in these cold environs, and is well draining, resulting in limited yields of elegant, concentrated fruit.
