For centuries the Würzgarten has been considered one of the best vineyard sites on the Mosel. In 1804, under the reign of Napoleon, all vineyards in the French Empire were classified, including those on 'La Moselle,' then French territory. The Weltersberg parcel where the grapes for this wine originate from, was classified as a Grand Cru on a par with the Grand Crus in Burgundy.
Farmed organically and harvested manually (the only way to work this very steep vineyard), the grapes are vinified traditionally with minimal intervention. After bottling, the wines are aged at least 2 years before release. Beautiful off-dry flavours of citrus with stunning depth and length.
