Biodynamic in conversion. A terrific follow up to last year’s inaugural release, this charming cuvée hails from a recently acquired parcel. Les Vignes du Precheur—‘the preacher’s vines’—takes its name from a single vineyard located beneath the Grand Cru Kaefferkopf, not far from the domaine. It’s on sandy/silt soils perfectly suited to producing fresh and dry, early-drinking whites. The site is currently managed organically and is in conversion to both organic and biodynamic certification.
The Preacher is a co-fermentation of five Alsatian grape varieties: 40% Riesling; 30% Auxerrois; 20% Pinot Gris; 5% Muscat; and 5% Sylvaner. The harvest was whole-bunch pressed, fermented wild in old oak vats and then bottled (unfined) after eight months on lees.
