Details

Bildstoeckle Riesling, Domaine Gerard Schueller, Biodynamic Single-vineyard, dry, aromatic, minerally Riesling. Schueller makes wines with a minimum of intervention. Zero, or the bare minimum of sulphur, is added during the vinification, the primary fermentation is allowed to reduce the residual sugar to a minimum, and Bruno allows all his wines to undergo the secondary malolactic fermentation. The result is wines of tremendous personality golden, aromatic wines with a wide range of aromas and flavours, and wines with dry, almost hard finish with profound minerality.

Domaine Gérard Schueller is located in Husseren-les-Châteaux, a small hamlet hanging on to the hillslope below a series of old castle ruins. Situated south-west of Colmar, they mark the northern boundary of the geological fault stretching south towards Thann.
The domaine is managed by Bruno Schueller who is anything but mainstream. Although the vinification methods, anchored in biodynamic viticultural ideas, create high class wines with loads of personality, the relations with INAO are not uncomplicated. Bruno owns land on Grands Crus that are split between Eguisheim and Husseren-les-Chateaux, namely Pfersigberg and Eichberg. However, the most interesting terroir may be Bildstoecklé. This lieu-dit is within the commune of Obermorschwihr, the southern neighbour of Eguisheim. During the years when the Grands Crus were delimited, most communes received their "own". Grand Cru. But not Obermorschwihr. Here, there were simply no reputed growers willing to mobilize and pursue the issue. Today, grapes from Bildstoecklé, a calcareous soil, are sought after by some of the most reputed domaines of Alsace.
