Wine maker notes
HEISSENBERG means the hot mountain , because of its very heat-driven microclimate. It is a very steep hillside, south-facing, in the town of Nothalten. It is the very last sandstone hill before the junction point with the granitic part of the Vosges mountains, which extends to the south. The soil is composed of pink sandstone along with gneiss. It gives birth to a particularly rich Riesling, sun-tainted yet with intense minerality, balanced by the mother rock’s powerful imprint. The vines are farmed using Biodynamic principles, as is all the domaine’s vineyard since 1998.

Food pairing
It is a great gastronomic Riesling with a pronounced personality, which requires spicy courses of white meats, sauced fishes, or aged hard cheeses. Above all, the mathcing with foie gras is always superb. Aging potential: 15 years
