Matthieu produces this wine from vines averaging 30yo on gentle south facing hillsides with a sandstone/ limestone base. Fermented dry it’s a really attractive and perfect to drink as an aperitif.
Notes on the producer
Matthieu and Marie Boesch are the 11th generation to take charge of the domaine, which has been in the hands of the family since 1640. Matthieu returned to the domaine in 1999 and worked hand in hand with his father Gérard experimenting in the cellar and switching to biodynamic viticulture. Their vineyards have since become a haven for the local wildlife, from birds nesting to bees building hives, and fawns taking naps in the shadow of their vines. In the cellar, pressing is long and slow (8 to 12 hours), yeasts are indigenous, and malolactic fermentations are allowed to occur spontaneously rather than being blocked by the addition of sulphur.
