On the boundaries of the municipality of Bergheim, to the west of Altenberg, this locality faces the south and the south-west, on the Kanzlerberg slopes, at an average altitude of 250m.
The very heavy, clayey-limestone soil is composed of grey and black Keuper gypsum marl formations and, at the foot, of Muschelkalk limestone formations.
Over the 3.23ha of this vineyard, Tokay Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and more particularly Riesling find all the conditions brought together for a fantastic typicity.
In 1312, date of the suppression of the Order of Malta which owned an estate there, wine was already being grown on this aforementioned hillside. Proof of its exceptional quality, it was part of separate vinification.
The Kanzlerberg Grand Crus require an ageing favourable to their strength and weight, which stimulates the union of heavy soil and grape variety aromas.
