Mandelberg (Grand Cru Elsass)

One of the Alsace (Haut-Rhin) sites classified as Grand Cru within the Alsace Grand Cru appellation. The name derives from the almond trees next to it. The south-south-east facing vineyards cover 22 hectares of vineyards at an altitude of 210 to 250 metres above sea level on calcareous marl soil in the two communes of Beblenheim and Mittelwihr. They are mainly planted with Gewürztraminer (40%) and Riesling (30%), the rest with Pinot Gris and Muscat Blanc. Well known producers are Baumann-Zirgel, Domaine Bott-Geyl, Burghart-Spettel, Frédéric Mallo, Jean-Paul Mauler, CV Ribeauvillé, Edgard Schaller, Philippe Scheidegger-Zimmerlin and Willy Wurtz et Fils.
