Tropical soils, fine clays and sands, plankton, coral reefs... the ocean sediment deposited here 400 million years ago has since been compacted into slate and rises today in steep cliffs from the Mosel Valley. What an incredible achievement by our forebears to break these stones laboriously by hand and then build the walls and terraces. A unique cultural landscape. The vines serve as a medium and intermediary between the stony soils and the sublimated wines that land in the glass, reawakening the flavors of the primordial sea.
