Its Origins

Bernard Schoffit is a brilliant pioneer in Alsace’s greatest Grand Cru, Rangen de Thann. The domaine, started by Bernard’s father Robert at 10 hectares, is situated near Colmar. 25 years ago, Bernard, then still very young, embarked on an ambitious program of buying land in Rangen, around the Clos St. Theobold. Totaling nearly 6.5 hectares, a good part of it had been abandoned because it was too steep to work. Through sheer determination and ambition, he has now reclaimed all 6.5 hectares. From these incredibly steep slopes, with incredibly low yields, he is making simply extraordinary wine from each plot he grows. Bernard’s gift for wine-making is not reserved only for his Rangen wines. In his vineyards near Colmar he practices the same rigorous approach to yields. These yields, very old vines, and Bernard’s guiding hand produce wines that are all marked by the following characteristics: intensity, very pure varietal character, great concentration of fruit and richness on the palate, and perfect acidity to balance and carry this weight into a long and brilliant finish. Organic.

What The Critics Say

90/100 Vinous, Ian D'Agata

"Pale yellow. White peach, nectarine, and white flowers on the nose. Juicy and precise on the palate, with sage-accented lime and underripe pineapple flavors lifted by a hint of candied ginger. Nicely detailed wine with sneaky concentration and length." Drink 2017 - 2026

89/100 Wine Enthusiast

"The subdued nose gives way on the palate to earthy apple, reminiscent of Russet, underlined by a vein of lemony acidity that brightens from the inside out. Lemony earthiness lingers on the dry finish."
