10 Days macerated then 8 months elevage in foudre (big old oak!). A layered, textured, tea-like experience with all the comfort and magic of our favorite skin contact wines. Think delicate strawberries, tart cherry, dried leaves, black tea. Yum.
As has become a familiar story in the region the Goepp estate has roots in the region for over 70 years, when Jacques and Andres Goepp ran the estate. Through the years it has stayed in the family, until in 2019 it was taken on by brothers Clément and Sylvain, from their father Gerard. Sylvain has long studied and worked in wine, spending time working with Patrick Bouju in the Auvergne and Clément came back to wine after working in landscaping.
The 11 hectares of vines are spread over 3 communes at the foot of Mont Sainte-Odile,
Barr, Bernardswiller and of course, Heiligenstein. All the grape varieties of Alsace
are represented including the rare Savagnin rose, the Klevener of Heiligenstein.
