This is the inaugural bottling for this wine, from low yielding, SW facing massale selection vines in the stony calcaire soils of the Lieutztal that she planted a dozen years ago. She patiently waited until the vines reached their early adolescence, with a greater sense of their terroir driven origins, before choosing to bottle it on its own. Fermented with 60% whole clusters and eight days of cold maceration. Aged in used barrels that she buys from Chassagne Montrachet’s Jean-Claude Ramonet, and then never sulphured (until just a tiny amountadded immediately prior to bottling). Gorgeously pure and classy aromatics of red fruits, spice, and light calcaire minerality.

Since taking over the family domaine in 2000, Agathe has rightly garnered a reputation as one of Alsace’s “comets in the sky”. Quantities from the 5ha estate are small and demand is high making the wines sell out fast. The vines are located around the village of Westhalten in the south of the Alsace region. Around one third of Agathe’s vines are in the Grand Cru of Zinnkoepflé – reaching up to be Alsace’s highest peak at 420m, with south/southeastern exposures and yet wonderfully sheltered – with the remainder in what is known as the Noble Valley. Agathe works this terroir by hand and by heart, organic principals and herbal & biodynamic preparations all contributing to the health and vigour of the vines. This land is tied to Agathe’s experiences from early childhood tasting with her grandmother and grandfather.

Her range, although limited in number of bottles covers all the noble varieties and styles of the regions and wonderfully exhibits the profound textural weight and verve of the region.
