Description

Details of wine

The Domaine Bott-Geyl, founded way back in 1795, is today directed by Jean-Christophe Bott who carries on the family traditions based on low yield but high quality crops.
Profound exponent of a low impact cultivation, in 2000 he converted all his vineyards into organic and in 2002 into biodynamic.

All this translates into a production method focused on respecting the vine and all that surrounds it, banishing any possible chemical intervention, using organic compost and guaranteeing the vine the opportunity to grow and spread naturally.

According to Jean-Christophe Bott "everything depends on the vine".

Les Element 2017 is a 100% Riesling from the Alsatian lands of Riquewihr, Zellenberg and Ribeauvillé. The grapes with which it is produced are harvested by hand and left to ferment in steel and then aged on the lees for 4-5 months.

The result is a white with a potential aging of 10-12 years which will enhance its softness and complexity.

Jean-Christophe Bott is heir to the family tradition dating back to 1795, when his ancestor, Jean-Martin Geyl tended his vines and made his wine. Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993 and he converted the vineyards to be organic in 2000 and then biodynamic in 2002. In the vineyards he concentrates on low yields and in the cellars he oversees the vinification in the most natural and minimalist manner. The whole art is to bring together tradition and modernity, to perpetuate the vignoble for posterity and to protect its ecology. Today, we have the good fortune to tend 15 hectares of vines including 6 Grands Crus and 4 Lieux-dits. We strive to bring out the natural qualities and the uniqueness of each of our terroirs and to conduct the vinification in such a way that this uniqueness is imbedded in our wines. This search for the authentic does not follow fashion: Jean-Christophe Bott has drawn directly from the riches of viticulture in the past, from omnipresent Nature and from his experiences at wine producers in France, in Germany and in the New World. It is his way of bringing together the history of the men and the women of the Bott family of Ribeauvillé and the Geyl family of Béblenheim, who trod the ground of the chai and of the vineyards over the generations. The Domaine consists of 80 parcelles spread out over 7 communes from Ribeauvillé to Kientzheim in the heart of the region named the “the Pearls of Vignoble”.
