This wine comes from two different vineyards of Domaine Marcel Deiss.
Beblenheim: Situated on the first foothills of the plain, its authenticity derives from its geological profile. Historically bordering a water source of superimposed beaches, this terroir has a very thick, homogeneous bedrock with a filtering, light, hot limestone surface soil, permitting a perennial acidity.
St Hippolyte: the vine struggles in this terroir, thus investing its energy in its grapes. Consequently, this terroir is one of the earliest to ripen in Alsace and early harvesting is required into order to maintain good acidity levels. It produces mineral and slightly saline wines.
