Planted on steep, terraced slopes with red-blue slate. Vines reach 60-80 years-old and their roots go down as much as 30 meters (nearly 100 feet). These vines have naturally very low yields, producing tiny berries packed with flavor. A strict sorting was done to eliminate any botrytis so as to express the purity and precision of the terroir in the wine. More mineral and honey on the nose than the Uhlen. The intense sweetness tastes very fresh courtesy of the wine's excellent acidity. Very limited.

"Like the Uhlen, but more muted and without the botrytis and concentration. Yet this is fresh and lively, with loads of mineral and spice accenting the core of apricot and peach notes. There's focus and precision that ends with a long aftertaste of apricot and jellied citrus. Best from 2012 through 2037. 50 cases made." 95/100 Wine Spectator (Bruce Sanderson)
