Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993. Under his watch, the vineyards were converted to organic status in 2000 and biodynamic status in 2002. In the vines Jean-Christophe concentrates on low yields, while in the cellar the wines are made using natural and minimalist techniques. Today the estate is made up of 15 hectares including 6 hectares of Grands Crus, where huge focus in placed on expressing the unique, natural qualities of the terroir.
The Furstentum vineyard has nearly 30 hectares of vines facing south, most of which are steep and at relatively high altitude, 350-400 metres. Here the microclimate and marl, chalk and sandstone terroir provide ideal growing conditions for Pinot Gris. The result is an intense yet light and slender wine with honeyed and rich stone fruit flavours. Pairs well with Chinese duck, strong cheeses or desserts with both sweetness and acidity, such as lemon pie or rhubarb crumble.
