It is the only terroir to produce botrytis almost every year at the estate. It must be said that this is the local reference grand cru, known for the monumentality of its best expressions. A sumptuous nose of violets, resinous and extremely racy; the wine impresses by the integration of its sweetness into its structure. Interminable, this is a dream vintage! Guide Vert RVF: 18/20

Viticulture

Biodynamic cultivation. Terroir located in the heart of the Ribeauvillé fracture field, which brings together hard Jurassic limestone and Lias marl. These fossil-rich formations have formed a poor clay-limestone soil, red (ferruginous), rich in limestone rocks. The micro-climate of Altenberg, due to its southern exposure, its distance from the Vosges front and its isolation from the Rhine plain, is hot, dry and almost overexposed. The grapes are very often affected by noble rot.

Oenology

Vinification and maturing in large tuns, on fine lees.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Why not try a farmhouse chicken supreme with truffles?

Domain
The Deiss estate is located in Bergheim, a village nestled in the heart of Alsace wine country. Born into a family of winegrowers who had been living in Bergheim since 1744, Marcel Deiss chose the profession of arms at the age of 18 and left his native land. Returning to his homeland after the Second World War, he rediscovered his roots and developed his small landholding into a dynamic winegrowing business. Today, run by Jean-Michel and Mathieu Deiss, the estate covers 27 hectares spread over 9 communes and 20 kilometres. The extreme variety of the vineyard (220 plots) has led to a search for the exact balance between the affirmation of the place, the expression of the vintage and the framework of the grape variety for each vintage. The interaction between these factors makes it possible to distinguish the so-called "terroir" vintages: here the place alone expresses its mark, dominating the other contingencies. It determines the style, the exact personality, the very physiognomy of the wine. For the Grands Crus, the indication of the grape variety is often superfluous as the influence of the origin is so strong on its usual expression. This effort, combined with high planting densities (8,000 to 12,000 vines/hectare), makes it possible to express all the fine nuances of the place, its temperament, its deep singularity. According to Jean-Michel Deiss, planting a single grape...
