lbert Seltz has always defended Sylvaner, convinced by the variety’s potential.
This winegrower believes terroirs in Mittelbergheim and Grand Cru Zotzenberg are particularly suited to producing quality Sylvaners, combining the mineral expression of this clay-chalk terrain with the variety’s spicy character. The Albert Seltz winery now sells 70,000 bottles per year (Sylvaner, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Gewurztraminer).
Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes (Old vines Sylvaner) is the basis of the AOC Grand Cru for Sylvaner de Mittelbergheim. This variety has found its perfect terrain in our village’s clay-chalk soils, particularly in Zotzenberg. The Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes is the estate’s icon wine. It’s a well-balanced dry white, full-bodied with weight and sweet almond note on the finish.
