Product reviews

"Bright gold-tinged yellow. Botrytized smoky peach and creme brulee with cinnamon on the decadent nose. Very rich and sweet but with good power and lift thanks to zippy acidity, which focuses the citrus and peach flavors. Finishes broad and spicy, with a captivating floral perfume. A very intense and concentrated wine: roughly 30% of the grapes were superripe and almost all of these were affected by noble rot. Sonnenglanz was historically famous for sylvaner, but just about any variety seems to do well in a soft, extroverted way in this grand cru."
 -- Ian D'Agata  93+   Vinous

Jean-Christophe Bott is heir to the family tradition dating back to 1795, when his ancestor, Jean-Martin Geyl tended his vines and made his wine. Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993 and he converted the vineyards to be organic in 2000 and then biodynamic in 2002.
 In the vineyards he concentrates on low yields and in the cellars he oversees the vinification in the most natural and minimalist manner. The whole art is to bring together tradition and modernity, to perpetuate the vignoble for posterity and to protect its ecology.

Today the Domaine extends to 15 hectares of vines including 6 Grands Crus and 4 Lieux-dits. This search for the authentic does not follow fashion: Jean-Christophe Bott has drawn directly from the riches of viticulture in the past, from omnipresent Nature and from his experiences at wine producers in France, in Germany and in the New World.

It is his way of bringing together the history of the men and the women of the Bott family of Ribeauvillé and the Geyl family of Béblenheim, who trod the ground of the chai and of the vineyards over the generations.
The Domaine consists of 80 parcelles spread out over 7 communes from Ribeauvillé to Kientzheim in the heart of the region named the “the Pearls of Vignoble”.
