Soil 

The Grand Cru Kirchberg from Barr Clos Zisser is a Monopoly terroir from Domaine André Lorentz. Its south-eastern exposure allows a long maturation of the grapes, giving birth to complex and racy, powerful and elegant wines.

Region

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

Sustainability

This wine is part of the selection of properties of the Helfrich Family. Like all the properties, this estate is part of an environmentally friendly approach with a program of growing the vineyard in High Environmental Value (HVE3).
