Tasting note from Aug 24, 2019, copyright Christina Hilker and Vinaturel:

Info about the wine:

The west-facing site opposite the Turckheim burn benefited from the north winds, and despite the Pinot's sensitivity to powdery mildew diseases, the grapes ripened perfectly without fungal diseases.

Removal Info:

In 2017 there were unfortunately frost problems and so only a 228l barrel and a 350l barrel, but of very good quality, were filled after strict selection. No racking and bottling directly from the yeast without filtration.

Color:

Muted garnet red with delicate lightening towards the rim.

Nose:

The 2017 Pinot Noir Heimbourg is a deep and distinctive wine. Its dense and expressive fruit convinces with fully ripe sour cherries, sweet raspberry and blackberry fruit, smoky notes, some truffle (which will become even more prominent with longer maturation) and noble dark chocolate. Distinct vegetal notes, reminiscent of tarragon and elderberry pulp, give it a refreshing edge. Its mineral framework is more than impressive.

Palate:

Minerality, acidity and fine-grained tannin are also what we feel on the tongue at first. A wine that still needs a little time to unfold in all its Burgundian finesse. The fruit is still somewhat restrained on the palate, but the dark berry notes become more prominent the more air it gets.
An impressive proof that it is possible to produce Pinot Noir in Alsace that does not have to fear the comparison with wines from Burgundy. Bravo Olivier!

Food recommendation:

Sufficient aeration allows this exceedingly fine and impressive Pinot Noir to win.
