The FRONHOLZ is a very special piece of land with great personality! Its location, as a hill apart from the main Vosges hill range, on the top and South-West facing side of the Epfig hill, makes it special. This is a very rare exposure for vines in Alsace, the whole vineyard being on the Eastfacing slopes of the Vosges foothills. As a result, there is a better photosynthesis, preserved acidity and aromas that are never overripe or exotic due to an intense and prolonged sunlight at the end of the day, and a very good air flow. These climatic particularites allow to produce a rich though very dry, sharp and mineral Pinot Gris. The soil of the Fronholz is made of white sands and quartz stones in the upper layer, and clay deeper down. The vines are farmed using biodynamic principles, as is all the domaine’s vineyard since 1998.
The FRONHOLZ, one of our virtual « Premier Cru » brings its straight and dry character to the Pinot Gris, giving it a great mineral structure and salty notes typical of this great terroir. This great Pinot Gris responds well to uncooked fish and oysters and has an exceptionnal longevity (more than 15 years).
