Lorentz | Gustave
Since 1836 la MAISON GUSTAVE LORENTZ has owned an 82 acre vineyard in Bergheim including 33 acres for the Grand Cru Altenberg de Bergheim and 3.7 acres for the Grand Cru Kanzlerberg. Since 2012, the estate has been inspected and certified Organic Agriculture by Ecocert, a guarantee of our production methods.
The Terroirs | A passion for the business drove Charles LORENTZ’s Father to focus on excellence by developing his vineyard on the ALTENBERG hillside in BERGHEIM.
Historically, the harvests from these hills promising the most exceptional potential are vinified separately. Thus Riesling, Pinot-Gris, Gewurztraminer and other Muscats native to this Altenberg express this region’s unique character from vintage to vintage. The result of this persistent diligence was the classification of the vineyard to the rank of Grand Cru in 1983.
The second of the Grands Crus in the LORENTZ portfolio, more modest in size, is the KANZLERBERG. A rich heir to a long history linked to the Knights of St John and the Order of the Templar, it allows, on its gypsum marl soil, expression of the complex finesse of the Riesling, and more recently the Pinot Gris.
