Old vines of sylvaner (70yo) growing for 2/3 on schist and 1/3 on sandstone. The grapes go through a 5 weeks maceration giving texture and grip to this wine. If you want to try pure delicious skin contact wines then look no further. I cannot repeat this enough I love the wines of Domaine Bohn.
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.
