Over the next week or so I am going to preview some of the wines that will be available to to taste at our wine tasting.
Firstly Schieferkopf from Alsace.
Schieferkopf is a new project developed by Michel Chapoutier with four friends around a 5ha domaine in Bernardvillé, Alsace. A unique blue schist soil gives poise and austerity to the wines coupled with high minerality, which is particularly suitable for Riesling, the dominant variety of Schieferkopf.
Although not yet certified, the vineyard is managed under organic and biodynamic precepts to get the best of this unique terroir.
