Riesling Vendanges Tardives Clos Saint Landelin 2017

Riesling Vendanges Tardives Clos Saint Landelin

The vine :

Located in Rouffach, the Clos Saint Landelin, fully owned by the Muré family, covers an area of 12 hectares (29 acres). It marks the southern end of the Grand Cru Vorbourg. Located at the exit of the valley, it is exposed to the south and benefits from an excellent sun exposure until the late afternoon. This makes it a very distinctive terroir. The north and west winds ensure that the vines remain healthy until harvest time. Its steep slopes require terraced cultivation. The marl and limestone soil is particularly stony. The subsoil is composed of calcareous sandstone from the Bajocian period (Middle Jurassic) and calcareous conglomerates from the Oligocene period. The vineyard is worked in biodynamic agriculture. The vines are tightly planted, at about 10,000 plants per hectare (4,000 plants per acre).
