Schaffhouse, Haalde Hallau, Markus Ruch - 2021

In the range of pinot noir of the domain, it is regularly the most opulent vintage, the most "black cherry", developing an important fruitiness and a generous flesh, which should be refined with time in order to let express the personality of this hyper chalky terroir, vinified with an important part of whole bunches, like in Burgundy.

Although the more than 400 hectares of vineyards in Klettgau are mainly cultivated by small-scale producers, Markus Ruch has always been convinced of the enormous potential of the country's northernmost wine region. The artist-winemaker has been cultivating his own vineyards since 2007. Before that he worked in Burgundy, but also with Marie-Thérèse Chappaz (VS) and Christian Zündel (TI). Today, he does his utmost to make you discover the taste of the clay-limestone terroir of Klettgau. His wines belong to the pantheon of Swiss production.


Produced in the steepest part of Hallau, the Haalde. The vines are rooted in very calcareous soil (PH 8.2). The whole grapes (i.e. not destemmed) are fermented and macerated with their indigenous yeasts for one month in Holzstanden. The wine is aged for 15 months in Burgundy rooms and bottled unfiltered by hand.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Roast chicken with morels - Quasi of veal with oyster mushrooms - Quail pie.

Markus Ruch's story is one of a series of encounters. First, he met the world of wine, after a first life as a customer advisor in a bank. Then he met the winemakers with whom he trained. Eight in all, including Hans-Ulrich at Schlossgut Bachtobel, Marie-Thérèse Chappaz, Dominique Derain in Burgundy and Christian Zündel in Ticino. Markus Ruch's unconditional love and fascination for Pinot Noir is certainly the result of his meeting with Dominique Derain, but it was with Christian Zündel, his biodynamic master, that Markus began to talk about the idea of one day having his own vineyard.
