About the wine
While its neighbor the Clos Jebsal didnt suffer from the frost, the Heimbourg Riesling was seriously impacted. With its slight south-west facing, it didn't benefit from the easterly winds that would have reduced the frost bite. The steepness of the marl limestone hillside wasn't enough! The Oligocene rock is an interesting red limestone sandstone that has agglomerated some older muschelkalk pebbles. The Riesling is planted on the steepest part of the hill. The clusters were small and rare in 2017, they also ripened very quickly to a high level, explaining the high potential of the wine. At such low yields, it is difficult, almost impossible, to determine with precision the alcohol potential of the grapes. The fermentation lasted forever, but eventually the yeast gave up and the wine kept some residual sweetness, in balance with the acidity of the vineyard.
Ample Palate that has a stronge ripeness of stone fruit. The finish very dry with finesse
