Kilian Franzen

Bremmer Calmont Riesling Grand Cru ( Grosses Gewächs) dry 2019

The golden yellow Riesling gets the time it needs to become perfect. In other words: dense, complex with structure and body. The vines, which are up to 80 years old, stand on the lower terraces of the mountain. Their loose-grained grapes allow for the latest possible harvest time.

It is said that the stronger the main course, the darker the wine, but not when it is a Bremmer Calmont Großes Gewächs. For a white wine, its golden yellow colour is already quite dark, but don't hesitate to combine it like a red wine. Perhaps with a pork fillet with chanterelle sauce or with Christmas goose.

Bremmer Calmont

Between the Moselle villages of Bremm and Eller on the terraced Moselle lies this vineyard, which can lay claim to the superlative "steepest vineyard site in Europe".
The hillside, about two kilometres long, has the shape of a huge concave mirror open to the south. The mountain's height of three hundred metres protects the valley from the cold northern winds.

The summit ridge of the Calmont, covered by forest and hedges, prevents the cold air from flowing down into the valley. The climate-mitigating effect of the waters of the Moselle is intensified here, as the river flows practically twice parallel to the mountain in a narrow loop.
The statistical figure of 65 degrees of incline says little about the imposing sight that the Calmont offers the observer.
Almost threatening like a wall, it rises three hundred metres from the Moselle, in many passages even steeper than this statistical 65 degrees, sometimes almost vertical. The steepness of this slope, created over millions of years by the course of the Moselle, can only be understood when one climbs into the terraces.
There is no continuous vineyard area; it is repeatedly broken by steeply sloping rock faces and jagged rocky outcrops. In order to make the slope usable, the winegrowers created terraces with the help of retaining walls, which, however, cannot withstand the pressure of the mountain in the long run, partially collapse again after a while and have to be repaired again and again or sometimes rebuilt. Viticulture in this region is not easy. It is a challenge every day anew and a task for life.

Kilian Franzen

In Europe's steepest vineyard in Bremm on the Moselle, Kilian Franzen and his wife harvest the grapes that grow in the Kapplay, Neefer Frauenberg, Abbey Kloster Stuben and the world-famous Bremmer Calmont sites. The Franzen family has been growing grapes in Bremm for centuries, and in the early 1980s, Kilian's father took over the business and laid the foundation for the production of dry, low-acid wines from the steep slopes of the Bremmer Calmont.
