IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Our different limestone vineyards on the domaine (Hauserer, Heimbourg and Windsbuhl) could eventually supply grapes for this wine; however, most of it actually comes from the village of Gueberschwihr. These vineyards are all located on a common marl-limestone base in a cooler area of Alsace. Usually the Calcaire Riesling shows good acidity and that typical mid palate weight that can be found in richer and deeper soils. The 2013 Calcaire shows good ripeness and was harvested healthy, but faithful to its style, it kept just a little bit more residual sweetness, but would still be considered as dry.

light gold colour. The nose is intense and flavourful, boasting powerful fruity aromas despite some residual lees reduction character (some people call it complex reduction!). Both nose and palate are classic limestone expression (wet stones, herbs, ripe citrus…). The palate is long, big with a firm acidity and finishes with a definite volume. The wine tastes dry, with only a small hint of roundness. It will age superbly and should open much more.
