  • The Hengst Grand Cru vineyards are situated on a 360 metre hillside, offering a composite marly limestone terroir. The soil composition is often compared to Chambertin in Burgundy; these conditions exalt the Pinot Gris which produces this cuvée. The fruit is matured in 100 year-old oak barrels or stainless steel vats, culminating in a wine with a beautiful burnished clarity and loads of fruit on the nose, including ripe white fruit accented by a hint of vanilla. A pure, unctuous mouthfeel leads to a lingering saline finish. This cuvée pairs perfectly with flavours of the sea, especially shellfish.

    Situated near Colmar, Domaine Josmeyer extends to some 28 hectares and has been certified organic since 2004. They grow all the great Alsatian grape varieties, which are distributed over the estate according to their best suited terroir. The property is home to some truly great Crus such as Herrenweg and Rorenberg, along with two of the most distinguished Grand Crus in Alsace: the Riesling Hengst and Riesling Brand.
