Chapoutier is better known as a renowned producer in the Rhone, producing a wide range of biodynamic wines from Crozes Hermitage to Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This is Chapoutier's Alsace venture - Schieferkopf (literally, slate topped) - is a joint venture between Chapoutier and four friends, none of whom are wine professionals. The five (the Club des Cinq) bought a 5ha domaine in Bernardville, whose vineyards, at 380m among the highest in Alsace, have 'unique schist soils giving poise and austerity to wines with high minerality' - ideal for Riesling, his agents Mentzendorff say. The vineyard is fully biodynamic, with handpicking in small bins and gentle pressing. The wine is matured on lees for several months in traditional foudres.

Colour: nice golden colour.

Nose: the nose is very fine with mineral notes and citrus aromas.

Palate: the palate is racy and nervous with a great minerality. Salty notes and long

finish. Very nice texture.
