The Ginglinger family is deeply rooted in the history of Eguisheim. Michel is the 13th generation at the helm since he took over from his father Paul in 2000. Rigorous in the vineyard and in the cellar, he applies the many techniques encountered during his various internships at Champagne Lanson and Domaine Armand Rosseau along with his time in South Africa and Chile.
Located 5 km south of Colmar, the Paul Ginglinger estate consists of 13 hectares of vines on slopes particularly sunny, exposed to the east and south-east, at an altitude of 220 to 340 m. The vineyards are sheltered by the foothills of the Vosges Mountains and benefit from a particularly dry and hot microclimate. The subsoil is marly, slightly granite, and rests on a very stony clay soil. The wines from these terroirs are robust, powerful and defined, capable of longevity while maintaining their typicity and floral aromas. The estate is certified organic since 2018.
Certified organic. The Riesling Grand Cru Pfersigberg come from two plots very close to the north of the Grand Cru on yellow and grey limestone soils.
The entire production is harvested by hand to preserve the authenticity, conviviality and above all the quality of the harvest. The pressings are carried out in whole harvests, then the musts are transferred to the tuns for the alcoholic fermentation with a control of the temperature (15-20°C). Afterwards, the wine is aged on fine lees in the same tuns, as well as being lightly filtered before bottling.
Displaying intense expression of white flowers, followed by stone fruits and citrus. Great balance with cool minerality in the finish.
Drink with copious amounts of seafood or is it drink copious amount of this with seafood… Salmon Tartare is a great shout!
