Each harvest, we go through all of our Grand Cru vineyards and Clos Windsbuhl a little early to pick out any younger vines that were planted after an older vine died. We simply tell the harvesters that they can pick the grapes if they can't get their hand around the trunk, and leave the very old vines for the Grand Vin. So this is a blend from all of our best limestone vineyards on our estate. Limestone, especially if it also contains some clay, has a cooling effect on the vines and slows down the ripening process, but above all it helps to keep the acidity of the grapes in good balance. It also forces this aromatic grape into a more complex, less floral style. The 2021 shows a surprisingly fresh acidity and was able to ferment completely dry, which is not usual for this wine.
