About: Two thirds Sylvaner and one third  Auxerrois coming from a single parcel of rich clay and limestone based in Bernardswiller. Part of the auxerrois was macerated in whole bunches for 3 days while the rest directly-pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for a 9 month élevage. Incredibly fresh with detailed notes of stone fruit and citrus, a truly remarkable wine for a first vintage. 

Anne-Laure is quite new to winemaking, only taking over her beautiful 1 hectare parcel in northern Alsace in 2019. The vineyard, planted on rich clay and limestone soils, has been tended to organically since 2018 and consists partly of 40 year old Sylvaner vines and 20 year old Auxerrois vines. She is one of the promising rising stars of Alsace, believing in good farming practices, patience during élevage, and a zero-zero approach in the cellar.
