Description of the wine Pinot Gris Rotenberg 2022
The steep red limestone slopes of the Rotenberg vineyard turn from a full north facing to west facing. The domaine owns almost 2ha on the part facing west, looking at the imposing Vosges mountains topped here by the big Hohlandsbourg medieval castle. (Going on the rampart of this fully restored castle will offer an amazing 360° view on the Alsace valley floor, vineyards and mountains, seeing the Alps also on a clear day!). Enjoying a late sunrise and early sunset, this vineyard is capable of retaining good acidity and structure every vintage. It was also capable in the past, in late ripening vintages, to produce amazing late harvest wines. Today, the harvest is much earlier and the grapes posses a balance that allows for the production of racy dry wines, perfectly illustrated in the 2022 vintage.
01/2024: Yellow bright colour. Discreet nose opening on citrus fruits with a tight feel, typical of the red limestone of the Rotenberg. The palate is actually more expressive than the nose, with a suave, velvety texture revealing more white fruits aromas, honey, some exotic fruits. It offers already today lots of pleasure and satisfaction with a long after taste.
The Rotenberg is the summit of the hill whose south facing slopes make up the Grand Cru Hengst. The steep slopes of Rotenberg are west facing and look onto the Haut Landsbourg Chateau. The point where the slope turns towards the north is the start of a small lieu-dit called Hinterberg, within the Rotenberg.
