As early as 783, history reveals that the wines of Sigoltesberg (today's Mambourg) were renowned for their elegance, harmony and capacity for long cellaring. Numerous convents and lords owned it and gave it its letters of nobility. Its particular geology, derived from the Oligocene limestones of the Quaternary period, gives the Mambourg a very rare characteristic, an ever-present tannic power, a smooth roundness of shape. The wines, always perfectly dry, are of course sometimes exaggeratedly powerful and extremely complex. The inimitable patina of rolled limestone
