About Jean Geiler
Sheltered from any oceanic influences by the Vosges mountains, the vineyards of Alsace benefit from a semi-continental climate characterised by sunshine, warmth and low rainfall. The Valley of the Rhine has always acted as a natural shelter for the vine.
In fact Alsace is the most septentrional region in France and the furthest from the sea, and where the annual rainfall is very low for a vineyard region at around 450mm.
The subsoil in Alsace, a mixture of granite and grit, is covered by a layer of geological deposits from granite to chalk together with schiste and marn and chalk. It is this diversity of terroir combined with an ideal exposition to the sun due to the southerly slopes, which gives the wines their special character. The region around Colmar, the heart of the vineyards of Cave Jean Geiler, is ideally placed with shelter from the west winds yet with maximum sun exposure.
The reflection of the terroir gives the wines of Jean Geiler an element that is both unique and complex, while the various grape varieties in Alsace (six white and one red) allows the best expression of each terroir.
