The Muenchberg Grand Cru, in Nothalten, takes its name from the 12th century Cistercian monks who used to meticulously work the southern exposed slope. The croissant-shaped vineyard is a suntrap over sandstone and volcanic deposits. Slowly and directly pressed, the wine stays on its lees for a year in traditional foudres, and is racked once during élevage, bottling is made without any filtration or added sulphur. This is a layered and complex style of riesling full of savoury and umami notes. Its an absolute gem.

Notes on the producer

Since taking over the family winery at the age of 18, Bernard Bohn has crafted an individually unique style of wines on the only outcrop of schist terroir in Alsace. The Bohn family members have been winegrowers for well over three centuries in Reichsfeld, a small village at the far end of the valley, where until recently, the local Alsatian dialect was still more common than French. Today, Bernard and his son Arthur farm just over 9 hectares and go beyond organic agriculture to incorporate uncommon techniques, such as completely abandoning vineyard plowing and allowing cover crops to coexist to create balance in the vines.
