Spiegel has been well known for over 50 years, a time during which the owners of this plot have done their utmost to preserve its originality.
Spiegel lies on sandy-clay and faces east. It stretches out halfway up the slope between Guebwiller and Bergholtz at an altitude of 260 to 315 meters.
The grapes are hand-picked and whole bunches are pressed. There is static settling of the lees. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled tuns, followed by raising on the less for 8 months.
The robe is pale golden yellow with translucent reflections. The disc is moderately thick and with a beautiful luminosity.
The nose is elegant at first, marked by aromas of fresh yellow fruits such as William pear and mirabelle. After aeration, the aromatic expression develops further and we discover hints of toasted almonds.
The onset is clear on the palate. A fatty sensation in the mouth completed by an elegant and tense freshness. Already open, the pear aromas appear again, completed by an exotic hint of banana. The length of 5 to 6 caudalies is marked by a slightly generous alcohol content giving a feeling of force.
