This site lies just below the Brand Grand Cru on a steep slope. 2020 marks a turning point for Clos Jebsal wines. Previously this site reliably produced late-harvest sweet wines, however as a consequence of climate change the noble rot does not occur and henceforth the wines are dry.

2020 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2020 growing season in Alsace was remarkably warm and dry, pushing most vineyards toward an early harvest. Heavy rains in early August supplied needed moisture and actually further hastened the ripening process over the ensuing very dry period.
Tasting Note
This wine is slightly subdued and austere at release. Over time toasted floral notes emerge with subtle fruit. On the palate this wine is delicate, elegant and ethereal.
Food Pairing
Ideal with a range of seafood both grilled and stewed, also superb with spiced chicken dishes and tangy cheeses
