Winemaker Notes

Two large fault- lines cut at right angles through the commune of Westhalten : the fault-line of Marbach and that of Ohmbach. The valleys which they formed are individualized by the hillsides of Bollenberg, of Strangenberg and all of Zinnkoepflé-Hohberg From the fault-line of Marbach several smaller fault-lines delimit the Zinnkoepflé from other lieux-dits such as Hohberg, Lutzelberg or Dirstelberg. On the latter are planted parcels of Pinot Gris,Riesling and Gewurztraminer. Its soil is Voltzia sandstone formed at the beginning of the second epoch.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
The subtle nose on this wine suggests wet chalk and just-cut apple. The palate adds intense apple freshness and a zesty edge of lemon. More air also awakens additional lemon notes with their ripe zestiness. The finish is dry, long and fresh with apple and lemon.

Agathe Bursin was born into a family of vintners. When Agathe was a child, her grandmother let her smell wines and decide if it was dominated by "fleure" or "fruit". In the kitchen, her grandmother made Agathe close her eyes and guess what was put in her mouth. These childhood experiences have contributed to Agathes current interest in flavors and fragrances.

Located in the commune of Westhalten, about fifteen kilometers to the south of Colmar, three famous hills of calcareous formation, Zinnkoepflé, Strangenberg and Bollenberg, form a crown around the village. Westhalten is famous for its Mediterranean-like microclimate. Indeed, this area is among the driest areas of France (500 mm of precipitation per annum), because it is protected by the two highest summits in the Vosges, le Grand-Ballon and le Petit-Ballon. This feeble rainfall over ancient limestone soils (along with fossilized anemones and oyster shells) creates one of Alsace most unique terroirs.
