One can't be a winemaker without passion: the severity of the elements, the limitless work required by the vines leading to the prestigious results obtained each year demand a special passion - the one that burns within us. The Cotes of Altenberg and Kanzlerberg It was this passion that drove Charles Lorentz senior to bank on it's excellence, in developing his vineyard on the slopes of the Altenburg near Bergheim. The grapes grown in this exceptional terroir have always been vinified separately. Riesling, Pinot-Gris, Gewurztraminer and other Muscats that originate on these slopes demonstrate from vintage to vintage, a unique character. This obstinate perseverance resulted in the awarding of the supreme accolade "Grand Cru" in 1983. The second "Grand Cru" of the domain, smaller in area, is the Kanzlerberg. A rich heritage and long history bound up with the Knights of St John and the Knights Templar, it allows through its chalky marl soil, the finesse of the Rieslings, and more recently, the Pinot Read more »

  • Gustave Lorentz Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Reserve 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted 10/13: Golden topaz hue, with aromas of dried pith, dried yellow stone fruit and summer flowers; big notes upfront of yellow stone fruits round in the mouth with an under current of minerals, racing to a short finish. Read More

  • Domaine Gustave Lorentz Brut Méthode Traditionnelle Crémant D Alsace Blanc NV

    Snoothrank:

    Crisp and well framed white apple fruit greets the nose followed by hints of sweet almond croissants and a touch of peach. Tart and yet gently sweet at the same time, this has a lovely mouthfeel with a light streak of astringency that runs through it. The fruit recalls the nose with tart apples dominating sweeter peachy notes and adding in a tou... Read More

Its an elegant style of wine that features nice interplay between silky and bright textural elements. A bit of watermelon and raspberry on the palate get some nice lift on the moderately lo...

  • Gustave Lorentz Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Great wine. One of the best Pinot Gris I've had. Mild but pleasing bouquet. Golden colour. Wonderful body and smooth, almost viscous mouthfeel. Honeyed but not cloying. Good long finish. Less grassy than the usual Pinot Gris. Read More
