Producer: Domaine Julien Meyer
Grape variety: Riesling
Fresh, pure Riesling, carried by a saline minerality. Wine blended from alluvium terroirs, clays in the commune of Saint-Pierre and clay-limestones from Schtierkopf.
Patrick Meyer took over the family estate in 1982 and quickly turned to organic farming, banning the use of synthetic treatments in 1993 and reducing sulfur to the strict minimum. Its wines received the biodynamic label in 1999. Various terroirs extend into the village of Nothalten at the foot of the Vosges. In Heinsenberg, Heisenstein, Zelberg and Grittermatte, the soils are a mixture of gneiss, clay, shale and sand. In addition, due to the location of the vineyard located at around 250 meters above sea level and the very low rainfall leading to slower maturation of the grapes, he decided to vinify the plots separately before any blending into a cuvée. 7 grape varieties on 7 hectares of vines. Patrick focuses on the minerality of his wines and the identity of the terroirs, working without added sulphites.
