Info about the wine

This "new" wine label complements the "Roches" series. As the name suggests, all the vineyards are located on the granite soils of the Grand Cru Brand. This wine is in fact the "second" wine of our Grand Cru brand, produced from the youngest vines there. Youngest, yes, averaging 36 years old, as the oldest vines are much older and produce a very different wine! In 2018, we also added very low production from the young vines of the Sommerberg Grand Cru, which was planted in 2013. I didn't change the average age of the vines, as it represents less than ten percent of the total volume. (Olivier Humbrecht)

Info about the expansion

In 2018, the grapes ripened quickly and reached a perfect balance. It was not easy for the vines, but the stress was under control. The 2018 wine fermented very slowly, but kept a steady pace and finished dry. (Olivier Humbrecht)


Bright and dense golden yellow with delicate lightening towards the rim.


The 2018 Riesling Roche Granitique pleasantly tickles and provokes the nose with intense, fresh fruit that brings to mind an entire fruit basket filled with exotic delights - such as citrus, orange, lime, fresh pineapple, mango and passion fruit. The brilliant fruit is topped with fresh ginger, lemongrass, pronounced stony minerality and liquid honey. A very open and intense drop that promises depth and substance already on the nose.


The fruit of the nose seems to literally discharge on the palate with density, fine fruit sweetness and precise acidity, which is beautifully embedded in its exotic fullness. The fine tannin and the associated delicately tart impression make it an excellent accompaniment to food. Despite its open impression, it has a very good storage and development potential for the next few years.
Decant if possible and enjoy from large glasses.
