Info about the wine

The Rotenberg site is located on a west/northwest exposure and hides behind the Grand Cru Hengst. However, it benefits from a beautiful opening to the Munster Valley and the Vosges. The late ripening vineyard is mostly planted to the Pinot family varieties. The poor red Olizocene limestone, rich in iron, naturally reduces the vitality of the vines and yields are usually very low. This vineyard has historically been known for producing harmonious, rich and sweet wines. However, due to the natural concentration of the grapes, complex dry Pinot Gris wines have also emerged in recent years. (Olivier Humbrecht)

Info about the expansion

This magnificent vineyard has developed an absolute capacity to produce a beautiful Pinot Gris. The grapes remain small, the yields are always very manageable and the ripening process is slow. The Rotenberg wines combine serious structure with good acidity and high extract. The 2018 grapes were healthy, retained nice acidity, and despite a relatively low pH for this grape, we were able to ferment the wine through. As with all dry Pinot Gris at the winery today, we age it on full lees for 18 months before bottling. (Olivier Humbrecht).

Color

Dense and muted golden yellow.

Nose

The aroma of the 2018 Pinot Gris Rotenberg is smoky, malty and masculine. But at the same time, fresh aromas of orange, orange zest and ginger flash up, giving it facet and play. Aromas of vineyard peach, plums, mango, quince and sweet chestnut add charm.

Palate

Markedly spicy and at the same time invigoratingly fresh, it shows itself on the palate. Here, its youthfulness comes to the fore even more and one notices that it is at the very beginning of its development - a wine with fantastic development potential that seeks the accompaniment of classic French cuisine.
