Zellenberg, a small wine-making town to the east of Riquewihr and located on a sandstone-limestone hillock, overlooks a beautiful vineyard. With a south-south-east exposure, Froehn is perfectly located on the slopes of the steep hillsides, between 270 and 300m in altitude and covers 14.60 ha.
It’s a clayey-marl soil from the early Jurassic period, is composed of dark grey schistose marl with fine white limestone beds as well as carbonated and ferruginous nodules.
Froehn favours Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Muscat grape varieties.
In his reference book, Médard Barth cites Froehn as one of the best crus of its time.
Froehn wine stands out with its fruitiness and weight. Its complexity gives it excellent aptitude for ageing.
