The Riesling vineyard is located on the top part of the Clos Windsbuhl, where the slope is the steepest and the soil poorer. Natural surface erosion probably explains less soil above the Muschelkalk mother rock. This type of limestone can be seen in some top vineyards over Alsace (Geisberg for example in Ribeauvillé) and is characteristically rich in magnesium, which bring an unmistakable structure and taste (grainy palate, elegance and volume). This was the latest Riesling harvested in 2014 because Clos Windsbuhl is also a very late ripening vineyard, fabulous for obtaining high physiological ripeness. The grapes were healthy and the wine took 15 months to complete fermentation.

93 POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE:
Terrific aromas of blackberries, walnuts, spices, bark and mushrooms. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and bright acidity. So beautiful now but be patient. This needs four or five years to come completely together. Wow. What class and precision define this wine. The aromas show such subtle complexity and beauty. Full and tight with a solid core of fruit. Polished tannins to the maximum. Better in 2021.
