Beck-Hartweg is one of the historic domaines of Alsace which can be traced back to the early 16th century. Florian and Mathilde are the 16th generation at the domaine and despite their young age they've already gained a solid reputation as a skilled and progressive representative of the future of Alsace.

100% from one of Alsace's finest Grand Cru sites at Frankstein. The grapes are slowly pressed and ferment in old traditional wooden foudres for up to ten months. Frankstein’s early ripening and warm terroir forces the roots to go deep to find water, nutrients and minerals, which results in a bone-dry, deep and powerful wine straightened up by an extreme salinity. Rock salt, Mediterranean herbs, mint, yuzu and bergamot are all part of its complex, refined and aromatic bouquet. A stunner, for drinking now to 2030.
