Tasting notes

12/2001 : The wild character of the Hengst (stallion in Alsatian) soil: marl calcareous, high pH, very aggressive to the vines associated to a vigorous fermentation produced a 2000 wine which is very powerful, extremely spicy, long on the palate. Any sweetness is completely blended into the wine’s structure and doesn’t show at all.
