wine description

Hills exposed to east-south-east at an altitude between 250 and 350 m on medium to steep slopes, enjoying excellent sunshine. A renowned terroir, the Osterberg is mentioned in documents from the Middle Ages. The lords of Ribeaupierre owned their vines there. The grapes come from vineyards grown on clayey, fairly deep and stony soil, made up of marl and limestone. With the orientation of the east-southeast slopes, they have the characteristic of being colder than the Kirchberg.

CLIMAte

In December 2010, numerous snow phenomena occurred while the rest of the winter was however milder and sunnier than normal with very low rainfall (26 or 14 mm in January and February 2011). This lack of precipitation lasted until June.
The bud burst took place fifteen days before a normal year. The dry and sunny climate allowed a rapid development of the vegetative cycle of the vine, with consequent flowering 2 to 3 weeks in advance. The good weather conditions during flowering have led to good results. Only a few plots (in particular Riesling) have undergone millerandage phenomena.
The wetter and colder summer months slowed down the development of the vines. At the end of August, about 50 millimeters of rainfall was missing compared to 2010 and 2009. Much of the precipitation deficit was therefore compensated.
During this year, the vineyard was constantly turned over in extreme conditions: very mild or even hot temperatures in the spring, dryness afterwards, heavy rains during the summer months. The difficulty was to manage the land in the best possible way, in order to avoid too strong competition from the turf during the dry period and to have grass later to absorb heavy rainfall and avoid too rapid an increase in size. berries.
The wines of this vintage are quickly appreciated.
