This wine is a blend from parcels around Gueberschwihr, the vines averaging 44 years old, along with some young-vine fruit from the Hengst vineyard. Olivier Humbrecht finds that these limestone soils retain moisture for the vines, so they don’t suffer from hydric stress. The fruit they deliver is focused on citrus, with notes of orange and lime tightened up by a seashell minerality. There are delicate scents of narcissus carried by the buzz of acidity.
