The grapes for this dry Pinot Gris come from a single vineyard plot that is 80 years old - the oldest vines in the estate. The harvest is manual and the fermentation spontaneous, ending in a small century-old oak cask where the wine ages on its fine lees for several months until bottling.

This magnificent white wine is defined above all by the finesse of its acidity carried by the very old vines of this plot. Its firm and tense structure contrasts with the natural breadth of the grape variety. We find aromas of white flowers, sometimes anise, aromatic herbs and white fruits. The length is always saline and can evolve towards more earthy tones. A wine with over 15 years of potential that will age beautifully in the bottle, developing rich aromas of ripe fruit and spices.

More about this product

Domaine Josmeyer

Domaine Josmeyer

The winery was established in 1963 when Hubert Meyer added the first three letters of his father's (Joseph) name to his family name. The family has been in the wine trade since 1854. Josmeyer is located in Wintzenheim, Haut-Rhin, Alsace, northeastern France, 4 km from Colmar, the department's capital. Twenty-eight hectares of vines, of which 3.5 hectares are Grand Crus Hengst and Brand, are planted with the usual Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner, Muscat and Pinot Noir varieties. In 1995 they switched to organic and biodynamic agriculture, receiving a certificate in 2004. In the cellar, too, the processes are natural and without additives. Josmeyer makes mostly dry wines, with huge potential for aging and development in the bottle. If you want to enjoy a classic taste of the Alsace area, Josmeyer is your winique choice.

Alsace

Alsace

Alsace is located in northeastern France, between the Vosges Mountains and the French border with Germany, marked by the Rhine. This is a long, thin region, 185 kilometers from north to south and only 40 kilometers from east to west. The key wine-growing regions here are located on the lower slopes of the Vosges, with eastern and southeastern exposure. Alsace specializes in white varieties such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. These varieties, naturally distributed in neighboring Germany, in contrast, here are produced in a much drier style. The best presented are the dry and mineral Riesling, the spicy and strong Gewürztraminer, which go well with the local cuisine. Other interesting and noteworthy are the light and fresh Sylvaner, as well as Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.
