VDP.GROSSES GEWÄCHS® identifies wines from the best vineyard sites. The 9 hectare LÖCHLE site is located in the south exposed part of the Burgberg. The vineyards are partly terraced, partly they have a slope of up to 40%. The special feature of the site, to which it owes its name, is a natural cauldron-shaped cut in the terrain. This depression has the effect that the two flanks of the hill protect the site from cool winds and a particularly warm microclimate can develop there, which is especially optimal for Burgundy varieties. The grapes are gently harvested by hand, carefully sorted and slowly pressed after a juice skin contact time of several days and fermented for about 8 months in barrique. Multi-layered soil profile of reed sandstone, blue marl, gypsum and claystone.
Characterized by ripe fruit and fresh herbal aromas supported by a fine minerality and zesty acidity.
