Interview of Mr.Axel Wulfken – Managing Director – Grand C for AsiaImportNews – Exclusive
Could you please tell us the story of your winery, when it was created and how it developed decades after decades ?
Two wine specialists with very different individual background have put their ideas together and developed GRAND C: Axel Wulfken, former Marketing Director at Moët-Hennessy, and Jacques Cattin, renowned winemaker and President of the “Association Crémant D’Alsace”.
The domaine Joseph Cattin, located at Voegtlinshoffen near Colmar, is a family owned estate of 60 hectares.
The vineyards lie on the foothill of the Vosges, the attitude varies from 200m to 400m, mostly facing south and south-east and thus getting a maximum sunlight.
This results in grapes incomparably fruity. Soils are mainly dominated by shell limestone, granite, loam and clay. Overall ideal conditions to produce excellent wines and crémants.
What sort of wines are you producing ?
We are producing sparkling wine, i.e. Crémant d’Alsace as well as still wines, e.g. Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Muscat, Gewurztraminer.
How important are your export distribution compared to national distribution ?
What sort of distributors are your customers ?
We are selling to HoReCa and wine stores, thus we are selecting distributors, who have a focus on this channel.
Why your wines are different from other wineries in your area ?
Our Crémats are all made from one single type of grape, i.e. Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and they have a long ageing period on the lies, minimum 24 months.
Do you produce grapes in a organic or environmental friendly method, or with general methods ?
Yes environment friendly method, however no bio-certification.
Are your wines already distributed in Asia, and if not what are the countries you are looking for new distributors ?
Not at this moment, all countries are welcome to become our partners.
Thank you Mr.Axel Wulfken – Managing Director – Grand C for your time and answers!
