Info about the wine

The Heimbourg is a small single vineyard of about 9 hectares, situated on a south-west facing slope, overlooking Turckheim and the Val Müstair. The soil is very thin and lies almost directly on the Oligocen mother rock, which is characterized by a high lime and iron content that gives it its red color. Riesling was planted in the mid-1990s before Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Unlike its immediate neighbor, Clos Jebsal, the grapes remain healthy due to the influence of valley winds and the poorer rocky soil. However, the sun-drenched exposure can greatly accelerate ripeness and, like most vineyards in Turckheim, harvesting must be done with precision to avoid over-ripeness and too much residual sweetness. The 2018 vintage shows perfect ripeness combined with very good acidity.


Sparkling golden yellow.


The 2018 Riesling Heimbourg presents itself charmingly on the nose with ripe apple, figs, dried apricots and orange. The fruity impression is inspired by fragrant floral notes and fresh herbs. With a little oxygen contact, it reveals spicy notes and a clear minerality.


On the palate, it appears pleasantly aristocratic, round and at the same time invigorating with vibrant acidity, salty hints and a demanding, strikingly spicy finish. The sweet-sour interplay connects itself playfully with the suitable dishes, nevertheless, one should not estimate his development and storage potential wrongly, he will reveal his true greatness only in a few years.

Food recommendation

If you want to enjoy it now, you should decant it for several hours and serve it in a sufficiently large glass; a few days of opening will make it more expressive.
