Schieferkopf heralds a new discovery of Alsatian and German terroirs for the biodynamic pioneers from the Rhône valley - Chapoutier. On the French side, the Domaine, which uses organic farming, is located on the only vineyard on blue Alsace shale. In Germany, three vineyards enjoy exceptional terroirs with granite soils. Common to both is the maximum sunshine exposure and a mosaic of complex soils which brings subtlety to the grapes. Organic and biodynamic principles are used in order to allow the terroirs to shine through these unique wines. A number of Sélection Parcellaire (single vineyard selection) wines demonstrate why Riesling is the noblest of grapes.
