Josmeyer - Pinot Gris Fromenteau
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.
