Vignoble A. Scherer
Mention RVF 2006
Young Christophe Scherer, taking over from his father André, is quickly establishing the name of this domaine, established by the family in 1750 and that is now in its ninth generation. He makes rich, yet subtle wines. They offer a superb example of a third style to complement Schoffit’s intensity and Mann’s delineation. Christophe works entirely with oak for his fermentations; large, hundred-year-old tonneau for the Pinot Blanc, Tokay and Gewürztraminer, and barrique for the Vieilles Vignes cuvées of Tokay, Auxerrois, and Pinot Noir. He is, in my experience, one of the most deftly gifted of any winemaker in Alsace with the use of barriques.
