GROSSES GEWÄCHS GG characterizes 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 peculiarity of the site, to which it owes its name, is a natural depression 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 and especially for Burgundy varieties optimal microclimate can develop there.
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.
