To say the release of Catherine's wines are hotly anticipated around the world each year is an understatement. A quiet woman who works mostly on her own, except at harvest. From a family of Alsatian restauranteurs, that she has gained such a following for her smallish amount of bottles each year is some achievement in such a short space of time. 

Her wines are based throughly in the vineyard, austere yet of exacting detail, a volume in the glass that teases you in with delicious aromatics and supreme drinkability. Working with Riesling, Sylvaner, Auxerrois and Gewurz over a  mix of terroir from the poor and sandy to more dense clay, plus a rare pocket of blue schist that some of her Pinot Noir is grown on.  

Do you have the Schist? Bright and pretty on the nose with a palate of red apples, flint and blackberries. The mineral core wraps itself around the fruit and fine tannins, lingering and ethereal. As it opens it becomes fresher, the acidity perfectly harmonious. A wine of purity and clarity. A wine to decant if drinking now.

A producer to watch.
