    Harvested on the 3rd of September (it's from a south/south-west-facing vineyard!), the 2015 Riesling Heimbourg is pure, ripe and stony on the nose, with concentrated lemon and crushed stone aromas. Dense, intense and piquant, this is a very elegant, juicy but always lean Riesling; it has a long, pure and salty finish with a good structure. The acidity is ripe and perfectly integrated. Tasted as a sample that was ready to be bottled on one of the following days.

    AN, 2017

    Firm and broad-shouldered, this dry and spicy Riesling offers a vibrant mix of crunchy white peach and poached quince, slivered almond and fleur de sel notes. Long and spicy on the racy finish. Drink now through 2030.
