Goldert Grand cru
Located in the North of Gueberschwihr, the Goldert extends between 230 and 330 meters high with an East exposure. It is the only land in Alsace with a geological substrate only composed by a marine oolite limestone. In the low and middle parts of the hillside, the underground, made of tertiary conglomerates, is covered by quaternary deposits where limestones and sandstones are mixed in a rich clayey matrix. This Grand Cru soil is deep, quite rich and fertile, and enjoys a good natural drainage.
This type of soil warms up slowly and therefore gives to wines a great acidity ; the slow evolution of the grapes to a physiological maturity allows the development of a powerful structure while maintaining the aromas finesse.
It enjoys a morning sun, thanks to its East exposure, protecting it from overheating, in particular during summer.
