Info about the wine

This wine is usually the second wine of the Pinot Gris from Clos Windsbuhl. Sometimes small quantities from other single vineyards (Heimbourg and Clos Jebsal) can be used in addition, depending on the vineyard selection we make. The old vines of Pinot Gris at Windsbuhl were planted in the 1960s or earlier. When we acquired the Clos in 1987, we had to partially replace some vines with some Pinot Gris between 1988 and 1992. These "younger" vines are not used in the Clos Windsbuhl and all go into this cuvée. (Olivier Humbrecht)

Info about the expansion

The style of the vineyard is very present good acidity, elegant racy palate but also a tendency to residual sweetness when ripeness is too advanced. It is therefore very important to pick at the right time and the Pinot Gris can develop very quickly, which was perfectly achieved in 2018. We were able to ferment the wine dry from very healthy grapes. (Olivier Humbrecht)


Bright and dense golden yellow.


The 2018 Pinot Gris Roche Calcaire is compact with distinct spicy notes reminiscent of cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla bean. With the necessary oxygen contact, aromas of orange, orange zest, baked apple, plums and pickled grapes join in. An extremely multifaceted fragrance spectrum, which is rounded off by fine cedar wood as well as smoky notes and at the same time by a fresh impression.


Freshness is also the credo on the palate. Due to its acidity, it is invigorating and at no time saturating. The fruit is juicy and charming, the finish is characterized by spicy seasoning - a wine that can be wonderfully combined with a variety of dishes, gladly with nutty and spicy components.
Decant if possible and enjoy from large glasses.
