But who is hiding behind the imposing Jean-Christophe Bott, and behind this Alsatian accent? A man who is passionate about his vines, his wines, who never tires of talking and making you taste his vintages, and for whom respect for the terroir comes before medals. We have had the chance to meet him several times, and it is always the same glow that animates his eyes and the same passion that his tastings convey.Lire plus Learn more
Heir to a family tradition dating back to 1795, when his grandfather, Jean-Martin Geyl, ploughed his vines and made his wine, Jean-Christophe Bott has been running the Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993.
He works on small yields, converting the estate to organic farming in 2000 and biodynamic farming in 2002. Today, he has the chance to work on 6 grands crus, 4 localities and 1 closed. At only 24 years old, Jean-Christophe draws on his guidelines from a rich wine-growing past, an omnipresent nature and experiences acquired with winegrowers from France (Domaine des Comtes Lafon - Burgundy), Germany (Théo Luckert - Franconia) and the New World (Rolf Binder Veritas Winery - Barossa Valley, Australia / Koopmanskloof - South Africa).
Being a winegrower is the art of bringing tradition and modernity together, making the vineyard sustainable and environmentally friendly. It is this spirit that animates me, and which animates my wines.
My sin mignon? Certainly the Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg.
We strive to sublimate the natural qualities and particularities of each of our terroirs and to conduct our vinification so that these specificities are part of the wines we produce.
This search for the authentic does not follow any trend.
This may seem obvious to some, but many winegrowers still neglect it: "Everything happens in the vineyard". Only a high quality grape allows you to dream of a great wine. I am an ardent defender of the terroirs, and the whole philosophy of Domaine Bott-Geyl lies in the desire to progress towards the highest degree of expression of these same terroirs.
