Wine maker notes
Muenchberg means the “mountain of the monks” and was first planted in the 12 century by the Cistercians monks. The total size of the Grand Cru is 17 Ha, we own 2,05 Ha of which 0,40 Ha are planted with Pinot Gris. The Muenchberg is one of the most unique Grand Cru of Alsace because of its very particular soil (red sandstone and volcanic sediments). The vineyard is based in the village of Nothalten. It is a wonderful south-facing amphitheatre of vines in a closed valley in the Vosges foothills, protected at the west by a big mountain (Ungersberg – 901 m). The altitude varies between 250 and 300 m which prevents from excessive heat and helps to keep all complexity in the wines. These vines of Pinot Gris come from a 0,40 Ha plot on the eastern tip of the Grand Cru which has a limestone vein cutting through the pink sandstone. Like all the domaine’s vineyard it is farmed using biodynamic principles, and certified organic. The yields for the Grand Cru are between 25 and 40 Hl/Ha depending on the vintage. We prune the Pinot Gris with two short shoots of 5-6 buds. We pay particular attention to manual tasks on the vine, because machines may be sometimes necessary but they will never have “man’s hand’s intelligent sensitivity”. For us, besides that, making a great wine will always depend on men and their commitment, their sensitivity and their passion. This is the key to succeed in Biodynamic viticulture. The wines from the Muenchberg have an exceptional longevity, certainly more than 20 years.

Other text
This wine became famous internationally under the name “A360P” which is the cadastral name of the Pinot Gris plot. In fact, for some of the vintages the AOC approval committees refused to grant it the right of being named under its real name: MUENCHBERG Grand Cru, because of “atypical woodiness”!!
