Alex and Christoph were bitten by the same Burgundy-bug and ended up meeting each other in Beaune, both on their own wine pilgrimage.
Over 5+ years, both garnered serious Burgundy credentials, working at Comte Armand, Bernard van Berg,Domaine Leflaive, de Montille, Pierre Morey and Domaine de la Vougeraie.
The farming is organic with elements of biodynamics woven in; they do buy grapes from a select few farmers who have worthy sites and who farm correctly (organic or biodynamic). Similar to Enderle & Moll, the Wasenhaus wines show an uncommon lightness and clarity. They are ultra-fine, with a textural elegance that is second to none.
