The jewel of the famous village of Riquewihr, this south-facing slope is established on green du Keuper marly soil. The nose is still discreet and allows floral and spiced notes to slip through. The palate oscillates between volume and mineral bitters with plenty of salinity in the finish. A fine gastronomic wine well worth waiting for.

The Domaine has always been farmed organically and Felix likes to play around with a few Biodynamic techniques. Felix also prefers to use large, older foudres (wooden barrels) in conjunction with stainless steel vats for the more aromatic varieties. This gives the wines a delicacy, depth and complexity which is quite special and most pronounced on the Grand Cru wines. Although Alsace is famous for being a white wine producing region, Felix makes some of the best Pinot Noirs we have tried. The aptly named ‘Gallus’ is amazing and should be snapped up when we have it. Buying his Cremant is also one of the most sensible choices you’ll ever make.
