The west side of the little Heimbourg vineyard enjoys a relatively cooler climate and is more exposed to the winds that run between the Brand and Heimbourg hills. The deep rich marl limestone soil is also capable to give great structure and acidity to the wines. When we had this little vineyard available in the mid-nineties, we thought that Pinot Noir would be interesting. In 2014 it performed very well, the wind kept the fruit flies away and the grapes were harvested healthy. Vinification is classic in an open-top wood vat fermenter (2/3 destemmed) and the wine is then matured in barriques (3 years old or more) for 18 months. No fining/filtration.
