Category: France, ALSACE, Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss (Biodynamic), 2015

Marc Kreydenweiss transmitted his passion of the wine, terroirs and biodynamical to his children. Antoine Kreydenweiss took over the management of the vineyard in 2007.

Accompanied by Charlotte; their daughters Zoe, Lilou and Leonie; the whole team and his horse ; together they show the same passion: create wines with personality and soul.

South-east facing, on a steep slope at the exit of the village, the Wiebelsberg is located on a pink sandstone soil of the Vosges. This is a floral and elegant Riesling, which will take over the years to an evolution of spicy notes.

The label for the 2015 vintage was designed by Artist Michel Holmer.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

The winery is located in Andlau, in Alsace, between Strasbourg and Colmar, in the area called Piemont des Vosges. Nestled at the bottom of the mountains, the vineyard has the benefice of a continental climate and the soils are based on a mosaic of terroirs.

The winery covers 13.5 hectares, including 3 Grand Crus of Andlau: Wiebelsberg, Moenchberg and Kastelberg and the Kirchberg in Barr.

The winemaking is from the traditional method, oak barrels (big : foudre) and on the lees.

Each year the label is illustrated by a different artist, chosen by the winemaker.
By combining the creativity of the artist and the knowledge of the winemaker, each bottle becomes unique.

The biodynamie is applied since 1989 and is the main part of the activities.

The diversity of the soils is an added advantage for the wines. The vineyard is planted 80% on slopes or half-hills, in south-south-east exposition.

The soil composition is complex, with pink sandstone, granite, schist gray/blue or black, sediment, limestone that bring finesse, minerality and freshness to the wines.

The vineyard is located in a radius of 10 km around the village of Andlau, but also to the neighbouring villages as Eichhoffen, Mittelbergheim and Barr.

Wiebelsberg: Located at the exit of the Andlau Valley, with a southeast steep exposure, the WIEBELSBERG is on a soil of sandy of pink sandstone from the Vosges, well drained and able to warm up rapidly. In short, it’s an ideal microclimate for the birth of a Grand Cru, where the mineral expression is represented in the Riesling.

Tasting Note

When young, it’s a rather floral wine (acacia and roses), with discreet fruit scent (citrus, ripe pears, peaches and mango). With time, it offers aromas of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, orange) with a very pure and harmonious intensity.

The colour is yellow gold, the nose opens on ripe yellow fruits. The mouth is rich and powerful, with a lot of delicacy. The terroir of pink sandstone gives the feminine touch. In the palate we like the perfection between acidity and salinity. To drink from now and to keep for 20 years.  Vegan.

Wine Advocate Tasting Note

Tasted from the foudre in April 2017, the 2015 Grand Cru Wiebelsberg Riesling is highly complex and intense on the nose, displaying gorgeous lemon, sandstone and smoky aromas. Very distinctive. Round and juicy, with fine tannins and an elegant acidity, this is a stunningly round and lush Wiebelsberg with a long and intense finish. I have rarely tasted such a sexy Wiebelsberg that is appealing rather to the hedonistic part of my soul. 94-95 Points – Stephan Reinhardt, June 2017
