Wine of the moment

Reasons to be cheerful

(if your name is Axel Neiss):

1) wind – plenty of it, ideal for dring the grapes after a bout of rain to avoid those pesky cryptogammic diseases; 2) elevation – height brings slopes and cooler temperatures – just the ticket when temperatures rise; 3) stoney soil rich in limestone – great for water retention and much less heat-absorbent than dark soils.

The wines speak for themselves: moderate alcohol, linear with animating acidity, puity and typicité of fruit, complex and elegant. And from the 2023 vintage all Axel’s wines be certified organic. Quadruple whammy.
