Situated at the heart of the Zotzenberg Grand Cru vineyard, the parcel called Terres Rouges, “Rotland” in the Alsatian dialect, “red lands” in English, nourishes some venerable Pinot Noir vines.  These vines are particularly good at producing a great red wine from this soil: a limestone-clay base enriched with iron oxide, an unusual mix which gives the Pinot Noir a finesse and incomparable complexity, as well as very silky tannins.  Our Pinot Noir Les Terres Rouges is a red not unlike those produced in the best parcels of Burgundy’s Côte de Nuit.
