Located in Nothalten, the Muenchberg Grand Cru is translated as the monks’ hill. As early as the 12th century, the Cistercian monks of the Baumgarten Abbey cultivated vines on these hillsides. Crescent-shaped and located on both sides of a south-facing valley, the Muenchberg enjoys a unique microclimate. The soil and subsoil are made up of 250 million year old sediments, dating back to the Permian period. They are pudding, conglomerates and breccias with often altered elements : volcano-detrital deposits, sometimes rich in tuffs and volcanic ashes. These rocky and sandy soils provide a poor soil, but where drainage is excellent and heating is rapid. The wines from this terroir are full-bodied and mineral, with smoky/toasty notes.
Wine tasting : Dry white wine for gastronomy, racy, pleasant, warm, fruity, delicate mineral definition. Beautiful length, frank and complex vivacity.
Gastronomy : We like to associate this wine with delicate dishes, such as clogged appetizing sea, a turbo fillet with shellfish and caviar Chantilly … Or more simply with grilled sea bream, poultry, goat cheese and more traditionally with choucroute or baeckaoffe.
