The first mention of the Lorentz Family in the commune of Ribeauville dates back to the 2nd half of the 17th Century when they were innkeepers and "gourmets" (old name for wine merchants). In 1748, wine grower & blacksmith Jean Georges Lorentz was the first to settle in Bergheim which later became the heart of their domain. On the same year that Charles Lorentz was born in 1836, Maison Gustave Lorentz was established. Today, Georges Lorentz manages this sprawling estate which consists of 33 hectares of Bergheim hillside lands in the heart of the Alsace Wine Region 12.8 hectares of which are classified as Grand Cru Altenberg de Bergheim with an additional 1.75 hectares classified as Gran Cru Kanzlerberg. A medium bodied & fresh red wine with pronounced cranberry, raspberry, & ripe red berry characters possessing a low tannin profile. Its crisp freshness makes it ideal for pairing with Tomato Based Pasta Dishes, Vegetable & Chicken Dishes, a Beef Tripe Stew, Liver Steak, or Oven Baked Salmon topped with Cheese.
Attractive red color. It develops an expressing fruit nose with lingering red fruit aromas (cherry, blackcurrant, red currant, etc..) We find again the red fruits in the mouth making this wine a very fruity, enjoyable, refined and fresh Pinot Noir, which is very food friendly and showing a pleasant freshness.
