Guebwiller et Bergholtz
Spiegel stretches mid-hill onto the boundaries of Guebwiller and Bergholtz.
On an average slope between 260 and 315m, it faces east. Its Oligocene substrate of conglomerates (mostly sandstone pebbles) and interstratified Latdorfian-age marl is partially covered by scree and Triassic sandstone-colluvium showing on the surface upstream. The soil produced from this substrate has a clayey-sandy texture with reasonable hydraulic characteristics.
The 18.26ha of this terroir are perfect for Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris to grow, as well as Riesling and Muscat over its meridional slope.
Spiegel has been known for already over 50 years, a period during which the owners of the Cru decided to persevere in keeping its originality.
The Pinot Gris from this terroir fully reveals this specific variety with its fine aromas: the wine is fleshy, smooth and robust. It is a wine which ages well. Gewurztraminer, most often sweet, and high in sugar during certain years, has a powerful aroma along with a floral and spicy-aroma bouquet which inter-blends harmoniously to form a fine and suave whole. Riesling is remarkable with its finesse, elegance and persistence on the palate.
