About the Wine

We’ve slowly been adding to our selection of wines from Beck-Hartweg, as we feel they are one of the most exciting young producers of the Alsace right now, after taking the reins at this historic estate. We picked this absolute stunner to replace the much-adored Granit Cuvée - here we have a beautiful snapshot of the key varietals of the region in a field blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir (direct-pressed), Pinot Auxerrois & Gewürztraminer, all mixed planted in a single lieu-dit, the eponymous Rittersberg. Voluptous and multi-layered, it stretches and expands thanks to polished tannins and granite-induced salivation. Bright tangerine color, peaches and cream on the nose, roses, tarragon and gentian on the palate, the bouquet graciously evolves from glass to mouth finishing long, complex and crystalline. A unique, characterful and exhilarating wine.

About Beck-Hartweg

Beck-Hartweg is one of the historic domaines of Alsace which can be traced back to the early 16th century. They're located in the medieval town of Dambach-La-Ville, a quintessentially Alsatian village, built upon a unique and homogenous pink granite bedrock. Florian and Mathilde are the 16th generation at the domaine and despite their young age (early 30s) they've already gained a solid reputation as a skilled and progressive representative of the future of Alsace. Respect and increase of life through their soils and vines have been the main focus for the past two generations, with the return of grass in the vineyards from 1982 and organic certification in 2011.

Tout Naturelliment Petillant 2021

A big bomb of fruit; fleshy, pulpy and concentrated. The Muscat provides floral, aromatic lift & musky perfume that gives that exotic appeal of the botanical garden. Explosive bubbles and plenty of barely-contained energy! Find out more.
