Grand Cru Vorbourg

The Grand Cru Vorbourg

Its marly-limestone soil rests on Oolithic (Jurassic) limestone and Oligocene limestone conglomerates. It is rich in iron, which gives it a characteristic red ochre colour. The Vorbourg is exposed to the south and south-east. «V» is the initial of Vorbourg, the terroir from which this wine originates. As of today, according to the specifications of the Alsatian Grands Crus, the name Vorbourg can only be attributed to the white grape varieties Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris or Muscat. The Vorbourg produce powerful and velvety wines, with elegant expressions of fruit aromas. Their finish is lifted by fine bitters.
