About Domaine Schoffit
Domaine Schoffit Facts
Domaine Schoffit originated in Colmar and has since expanded outward -- farther than anyone thought possible. Founded by Robert Schoffit, his son Bernard now manages the estate. Suffice it to say that he has elevated this Domaine to its greatest imaginable height. Bernard is a reliable source for creamy-rich and often high-alcohol Rieslings with considerable weight. Even the dry bottlings here normally have significant residual sugar.
Varietals Produced at Domaine Schoffit
Schoffit also makes a powerful, thick and weighty Pinot Blanc in the style of Pinot Gris: with plenty of smoky, tropical fruit and chewy texture. Schoffit works vineyards both in the Harth, just outside the town of Colmar, in addition to newly acquired steep slopes in Rangen, near the Clos St. Theobold. This latter parcel had been mostly abandoned, thanks to the formidable challenge of working there. Schoffit however, has proven himself capable, and much more, producing extraordinary wine of immense concentration from these low yielding vines.
