It was the last dance for this old lady, a 70 year old gewurztraminer plot and this dance was amazing , more than mature, botrytised, concentrated. Often not more than one grape here and there. And we bottled 250 bottles for nearly 25 years… We removed the stocks and replanted 2 years later with pinot noir…
“Last dance”: an incognito late harvest gewurztraminer 2015
– the wine comes from a hill located in the field of geological fracture of the Vosges foothills, at the place called Hinterburg, which alternates granite, sand stone, clay, chalk soils. Exposure is south east with total sunshine old day, on a gentle slope. The vines were planted between 1955 and 1960. The plot is close to the natural protected area of the Florimont hill well knows for its mediterranean climate. The wine is the ultimate expression of older vines, and was the last dance for these vines.
