Hattstatt et Voegtlinshoffen
To the south of the Alsace wine-growing area, the locality overlaps onto the boundaries of the municipalities of Hattstatt and Voegtlinshoffen, on a regular-sloped hillside at an altitude ranging between 210 and 330m.
On a marl-limestone substrate filled with numerous stones, covered downstream with scree deposits and loess silt, the soil is fairly heavy, deep and well-drained.
These specific qualities, favourable to vine-growing, is combined with a great south and south-east exposure.
This terroir has a surface area of 47.36ha and is perfectly suitable for Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Riesling. Muscat produces some subtle wines.
Boasting a very ancient reputation, Hatschbourg is mentioned in several documents from the early Middle Ages. Sale deeds dating from the 16th and 17th centuries attest the presence of vineyards of this Cru and the high prices of its wines.
The wine from the Hatschbourg Grand Cru presents wonderful typicity, very developed aromas and age very well.
