  • What's new with Klur ?

A lot of happenings in wine cellar and vineyards

29 avril 2009, it is springtime and everything awakes  ! this special and rare vineyards tulips bring a lot of sunshine actually. It is a period of soil work and for the biodynamic preparation called 500. Yesterday was perfect because the rain of the night opened the soils after 10 days of very hot and dry weather. At 6 pm everything was ready except this home made engin used to spray the preparation on the vineyards soils, Clément had to repare quick before spreeding out until the night. During the day we prepared the embotteling of next week and had to clean the tuns. As pinot gris Klur and riesling grand cru Wineck Schlossberg are still in fermentation, the wines for the Voyou de Katz and Gentil de Katz 2008 are ready. Today 2 delegations of the national organisation Vignerons Independants visited us. 50 wine growers from other regions in France interested by organic growing, architecture, and wine tourism. This is  the wine growers life...always jumping from one work to the other !

2 Stars "Coup de Coeur" by the Guide Hachette 2008

For the PINOT GRIS KLUR
"From both the paternal and maternal side of the ancestors of this wine have been cultivating vines since 1600. However, this family cares about the environment and Clément Klur who became indpendent in 1999 has resolutely directed himself toward biodynamic and organic agriculture: the wine barels are placed in circles in the circular cave that is protected by a grass roof...Pour le PINOT GRIS KLUR "Even the country cottages are "organic". The wine ? Originating from a calcium and clay rich earth, this pinot gris is classified and fine: its flavors of honey, quince, and ripe fruits takes on nuances once combined in the mouth. A distinguished ensemble, fresh and persistant. May be served immediately with duck canard and quince for example (residual sugars "16g/l)".  www.klur.net
