Description :

The Clos Hauserer vineyard is located right under the limit of the Grand Cru Hengst and shares in fact a common vineyard name with one of the best part of the Hengst: Soedlen. This little 1.2ha clos is along a small path called the Hauserer Weg, which gave the name to our parcel. The vines are growing on a deep marl soil on top of a calcareous Oligocene mother rock. This interesting combination brings a fabulous structure to the Riesling and makes it grow slower, even in warmer vintage. The 2011 harvest was very healthy and the yeasts managed to ferment most of the sugars.


Commentaires de degustation :

2/2013: the nose is so characteristic of limestone: stony elements, minerals, almost sea air associated with the ripe fruit aromas which are the signature of 2011 wines. The palate opens quickly on wet stones and there is a sense of firm structure and that the wine is clearly not giving everything today. Long finish, dense dry with great acidity.
