Cushioned between the rolling vineyards of Wintzenheim, near Colmar, Domaine Josmeyer has been a pioneer in biodynamics since 2000 under the leadership of the late Jean Meyer. It is now run by his daughters, Isabelle and Céline. The estate is spread over 90 plots including the Hengst and Brand Grands Crus. Crafted with minimum intervention, the wines are delicate, deep, balanced, with a dry edge allowing minerality to shine through. The Artist Series are produced from the valley on alluvial soil: they are elegant, soft and voluptuous. The calcareous and marl soils of Hengst vineyard delivers rich and full-bodied whites while the deep granite soils of Brand deliver incisive and fine structured cuvées. Both Grand Crus are shaped to age gracefully.

Biodynamic. The old vines are situated in the Herrenweg of Turckheim, where the flat alluvial deposits of the Fecht river are rich in clay, sand, shingle, silt, with a high incidence of pebbles and frequent plates of loess. Similar to the soil of Graves, this terroir offers aromatic, ripe, voluptuous and elegant wines.
Fifty years old vines. Hand harvested. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Aged 12 months on the lees in large century old foudres. RS 4g/l.

The Pinot Gris Le Fromenteau is characterized by subtle smokiness on the nose, adding allure to the pear notions. The palate, immediately bonedry and bright, has vivid freshness. The mouthfeel is almost viscous, really concentrated with walnut skin notions adding additional texture and mouth-watering bitterness. This will evolve beautifully with its bone-dry but concentrated nature.
