This wine only represents a very small batch originating from a small vineyard located on the village of Gueberschwihr, very close to the Grand Cru Goldert. (Before, it used to blend with the youngest vines from the Hengst, now pulled out). With a similar east facing gentle slope and later ripening climate, this wine is often harvested late. The slightly richer soil made of deep marl and clay deposits often produces a spicy elegant type of Gewurztraminer in the medium sweet range. The grapes were very healthy in 2016 as it wasn’t a vintage for botrytis. However, the natural richness of the Gewurztraminer explains the presence of residual sweetness.
This is a rich wine (Indice 4) yet with great finess and energy due to the limestone subsoils. Aromas include rose petal, lychee fruit, leather and a touch of smoke and damp earth.
