A dry Riesling of exemplary sobriety, powerful and lively, slender and delicate, all its strength focused around a vertical axis. A wine of modern architecture, with clean lines, which emphasize the essential in a few vanishing points, lemony and sapid frame, filigree minerality, saline finish, revealing a deeply terroir and authentic spirit.
François Baur in Turckheim
Pierre and Thomas Baur bring their common ambition and passion to this estate which will soon be three hundred years old. Heirs of a family tradition that survived the Revolution and the Great Wars, they are now overlooking 12 hectares of south facing vines, just above the village of Turckheim, with the conviction of the young generations for whom the sustainability of the vineyard and the quality of the grapes are inseparable from biodynamics.
Beyond the practices in symbiosis with nature, it is also worth giving consideration to what the legend, according to which a powerful dragon would have fertilized with its blood the vines located in the Brand area, says about the specificity of this granite terroir. If the dragon may have come out of some inspired spirits in times when science was lacking, the legend is not mistaken in recognizing an exceptional terroir, classified in Grand Cru, that the estate showcases under the colors of the different local grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Riesling and Gewurztraminer.
