Grand Cru Kirchberg de Ribeauvillé

Grand Cru from Alsace




An Exceptional Terroir 

Delimited in the south by the town of Ribeauvillé and in the east by the Grand Cru Geisberg, this place benefits from a south and south-west exposure which, associated with a very marked slope, gives it an excellent sunshine at the time of ripening. Its substrate consists, downstream, of triassic dolomitic marl and Lower Muschelkalk dolomites, upstream, of variegated sandstone and gypsiferous marl of the Middle Muschelkalk.
Clay soils, often very stony, welcome this vineyard located at an altitude of 270 to 350 m.


A Favorable Variety

The Riesling makes the most of the qualities of sunshine of the locality which covers an area of 2.5 ha.

A great finesse, a well-built body : our Riesling grand Cru Kirchberg develops over time the remarkable aromas characteristic of marl-limestone soils.

Cited for the first time in 1328, according to the famous historian Médard Barth, the Kirchberg covers one of the best terroirs of the town.
The wines from this terroir have for many years been the subject of a claim of the Kirchberg appellation.





Riesling Grand Cru Kirchberg 2016

With aromas of white peach on the nose, this Grand Cru is already intense and open. The palate is marked by minerality with a sharp and lemony finish. A complex and pure wine.
