Characteristics of Josmeyer Grand Cru Hengst Riesling

Josmeyer Grand Cru Hengst Riesling is a biodynamic white wine made on lees with the white Riesling variety in the AOC Alsace (France) by Domaine Josmeyer. 

Considered a true wine poet, Jean Meyer creates fine, elegant wines based on biodynamic methods. A whole philosophy of work and life that, following his death in 2016, his daughters continue with the same passion. Located in Wintzenheim, a wine-growing town near Colmar (Alsace), the Josmeyer winery continues to present its various collections of harmonious and brilliant wines with creative labels by young artists.

Josmeyer Grand Cru Hengst Riesling comes from one of the winery’s grand crus. A very particular site located on a slope 360 meters high and composed of soils of limestone, calcareous marl and layers of red, brown, green and beige sediment. A 100% biodynamic agriculture is practiced and the grapes ripen slowly and with fabulous richness.

Once the Josmeyer Grand Cru Hengst Riesling grapes have been harvested by hand, they’re pressed whole in pneumatic presses for 5-8 hours in contact with the skin. Then they ferment spontaneously for a month with native yeasts in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks. Finally, after a very gentle filtering, the wine is bottled.

As its very name Hengst (stallion) indicates, Josmeyer Grand Cru Hengst Riesling is a young, fresh, indomitable white wine which is full of potential.
