The vineyards cover 14.5 hectares of which 2.7 are in the Grand Cru Zinnkoepflé. Since 2000 the domaine have maintained a Biodynamic certification for their organically produced wines which only strengthens the original traditions laid down generations ago.
This Cremant is gourmet and expressive. The aromatics show stewed pear, raspberries, and cooked buckwheat. The palate is all about finesse with a touch of grapefruit.
