(2023) Again, age has developed the colour here, the wine having just 5g/l of sugar and coming from vineyards that are 25 to 40 years old, planted between 240 and 270 metres on limestone. Heimbourg is a single vineyard, though not rated Grand Cru. Slightly less aromatic than the Prophet's Rock, but otherwise very similar aromatics, the buttery and peachy character delightful. The palate is opulent and rich, full-textured and mouth-filling. There's a glycerine richness to this along with that touch of sugar, but it has an almost Botrytis character in the finish with the dry, toasty undertow to the finish.
(2023) This is a dry Grand Cru Pinot Gris that opens with spice, pepper and florals atop pure orchard fruit. There's the merest hint of sweetness to the initial flavour, then such a pure, harmonious blend of rich, quite exotic nectarine, a bright orangey acidity, and shimmering length. A lovely Pinot Gris.
(2023) Similarly delicate, stony and subtle aromas. a little glacé fruit and a touch of honey. The palate has that decisive acidity and precision again, perhaps marginally more robust than the Pfersigberg, but balances that with extra tang and juiciness.
(2023) From a Grand Cru that has an interesting gravel soil that is rich magnesium, this has a very pure, gentle aromatic, of ripe and delicate apple blossom, but with lots of precision. In the mouth it is really nicely pitched: there's a lemony freshness and the bite of crisp apple, but it flows like a mountain stream into a long finish, touched by a saline slipperyness, but sheer and precise.
(2023) A tiny bit more residual sugar than the Fels, but still dry, again this spends 15 months in foudres. A touch of gold to the emerald green colour, and the nose is similar to the Fells with custardy apple and minerality. Maybe just a little more spice and grip than the Fels, though not quite the slick density, but fascinating again.
(2023) From soils of blue schist (slate), aged for 15 months in foudres. Slightly buttery and smoky mineral aromas to golden delicious fruit. The palate shows good fruit density and richness, but a saline touch to the flavours and acidity gives a very interesting, pure and slaty finish.
(2023) From chalky sandtone, A little more subdued than the Geisberg, just hints of waxiness to more straightforward apple and citrus. Very pure and intense palate, great concentration of preserved lemon richness but cut by decisive acidity into a long finish.
(2023) Grown on limestone and sandstone, there's just a touch of residual sugar in a wine that shows hints of beeswax and honey, and ripe apple fruit. In the mouth it has a lightly slippery texture and very pure and expressive riesling flavours; lemony and intense, with a bracing, salt-licked finish.
(2023) Limestone Grand Cru soils, and again relatively modest aromatically. Lemon and apple aromas don't exactly leap from the glass. In the mouth more concentration than the Bollenberg for sure, a thrust of decisive citrus, a teasing hint of peach before the stony acidity clamps the finish.
(2023) TERROIR: From mountain vineyards on volcanic soil, there's much more of a flint and waxy, paraffin nuance to this wine. Fruit is punchy and vibrant, lime-streaked and very zesty, it has a peppery and salty aspect too, and a long finish.
