One of Alsace’s young generation of growers producing notable wines in a village  in the so-called Couronne d’Or, the ‘golden crown’ of vineyards west of Strasbourg at the top end of the Route des Vins. Amongst other things, Loew has set himself the task of rehabilitating Sylvaner - whose reputation in Alsace is as a clumsy, heavy-cropping, unlovely variety - which he believes capable of great things. All low-yielding, some (lightly) oaked, some late harvested (in certain vintages approaching an ice wine), they’re worth discovering – as are his beautifully structured Rieslings and rich Pinot Gris.
