About This Wine:

The Domaine Remy Gresser is located in Andlau, halfway between Strasbourg and Colmar. The village is situated on the Wine Route at the foot of the Mont Ste Odile and on slopes that have long been renowned for the quality of their wine.

Our philosophy
We tend our vineyards with the same care and attention as our ancestors and seek always to pass on future generations the heritage of our land: the living soil of the terroir, the deep-reaching old vines, the natural environment with its flora and fauna, the savoir-faire, handed down from father to son since the 16th century, the sense of history and of tradition and, most important of all, the love of winemaking. This is the secret behind the great vins du terroir produced by our domain.
Located in Andlau, half way between Colmar and Strasbourg, Domaine Rémy Gresser dates back to 1520, beginning with Thibault Gresser, a viticulturist and appointed provost of Andlau. Today, Rémy, a biodynamic wine grower, continues the family wine making tradition tending to his 35.5 acres.

Lieu Dits
His estate produces three Grands Crus: Kastelberg,Wiebelsberg and Moenchberg. His crus or lieu dits (designated vineyards) are Brandhof (limestone), Duttenberg (claymarne) and Kritt (gravelly soil). Each vineyard gives the wine a distinctive flavor. The average age of the vines is 40 years.

The Wines
Rémy produces exciting wines of great purity and expression due to the soil from which they come. These wines are food friendly and have no residual sugar with the exception of his late harvest and selection de grains nobles of amazing complexity.

Rémy’s Philosophy
Rémy tends his vineyards with the same care and attention as his ancestors and seeks to pass on to future generations the heritage of the land: the living soil of the terroir, the deep-reaching old vines, the natural environment with its flora and fauna,
the savoir-faire, handed down from father to son since the 16th century, the sense of history and of tradition and, most important of all, the love of winemaking. Rémy believes the most important thing is the love of the soil. He believes this is what seperates the winemaker whose prime concern is profitability and market forces, from the authentic winemaker who remains faithful to a philosophy of the terroir and the environment and who represents the historical qualities of land-proud peasant.


Ratings & Reviews



90 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Pale straw-green. Vibrant aromas of white stone fruits, chlorophyll and wet stone. Clean and precise on the palate, with lively acidity giving focus to the crisp stone fruit and herb flavors and carrying them through a persistent finish.This is made from 35-year-old vines planted on mainly loamy-marly clay; yields are only 50 hectoliters per hectare, which allows the Sylvaner to show all it’s got--something it never does at much higher production levels." - Ian D'Agata (April 2015)

Wine Spectator:
"A clean-cut white, lithe and lightly juicy, with apricot, sea salt, fresh earth and lemon wax notes on display. Drink now. 76 cases imported." –AN (Oct 15, 2014)
