Dopff & Irion Grand Cru Goldert Gewurztraminer

  • A.O.C. Alsace Grand Cru Gewurztraminer
  • Terroir

    The upper part comprises a fairly steep slope, made up of a geological substrate of oolitic limestone from the Dogger hills. Lower down, the subsoil, composed of tertiary conglomerates, is covered by quaternary solifluction deposits, where fragments, limestone and sandstone pebbles, merge within an argillaceous matrix. The best exposed and most healthy soils bring together the limestone soils. These quaternary deposits provide excellent drainage.
