Roman Niewodniczanski calls it a "little Sharzhof" and says that if there were such a thing as First Growths in Mosel, this would be one of the very best, like Vosne-Suchots or Malconsorts in Burgundy. It is a wine of great energy: its ripe and fresh structure is as seductive as the crystalline purity of its perfumes, with honeysuckle, Menton lemon and a hint of fresh blackcurrant.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Scallops with citrus fruits - Monkfish cheek in blanquette with olives and lemon confit - Turbot boulangère with Pantelleria capers

During the French Revolution, the ecclesiastical lands were secularised. During the French Revolution, the ecclesiastical lands were secularised and the Brussels brewer, Gustav Van Volxem, became the owner. This visionary was quick to recognise the potential of the vineyard, which was very well situated on the Saar, and succeeded in making it one of the most renowned in the Prussian Empire. The rise of the region's wines triggered the golden age of the winery, whose "nectars" appeared on many prestigious wine lists around the world.After four generations of the Van Volxem family, the estate was bought by Roman Niewodniczanski in 2000.
