This wine was born in the heart of shales. Its olfactory expression reveals aromas of sandalwood, wax, jasmine and white chocolate enhanced by spicy notes of coriander and camphor. It is a saline wine coated with a lingering and luscious minerality, and honeysuckle. Can be paired with with noble fish and shellfish at sea, but also on land with poultry and chanterelles. Decant before tasting.
Since taking over the family winery at the age of 18, Bernard Bohn has crafted an individually unique style of wines on the only outcrop of schist terroir in Alsace. The Bohn family members have been winegrowers for well over three centuries in Reichsfeld, a small village at the far end of the valley, where until recently, the local Alsatian dialect was still more common than French. Today, Bernard and his son Arthur farm just over 9 hectares and go beyond organic agriculture to incorporate uncommon techniques, such as completely abandoning vineyard plowing and allowing cover crops to coexist to create balance in the vines.
