Description of the wine Muscat Grand Cru Goldert 2000

At the opposite of the Herrenweg, the Goldert is planted with 80% of Muscat d’Alsace and 20% of Muscat Ottonel. The Goldert vineyard is able to give more structure and acidity to the wines, thanks to its oolithique calcareous soil and its cooler climate.

Tasting notes

12/2001 : The 2000 is more mineral on the nose and less intense in fruit aromas, but show much more concentration and complexity on the palate. The fermentation, very long, wasn’t able to transform all the sugars, but this wine does not taste sweet on the palate today and even less in a few years.
