Grapes are hand picked off vines, twenty five years of age, planted to clay and limestone soils on steeply sloped vineyards, within a dozen of the finer precincts around Riquewihr. Bunches are gathered in small tubs and treated to a gravity filled press, retaining the pristine qualities of grapes. Juices are decanted for a few hours before fermentation in temperature controlled barrels or vats at 18°C to 24°C. Components are racked upon completion and cold settled throughout winter for natural clarification. Batches are lightly filitered in the spring, bottled and sent to the Hugel cellars for maturation.
