Biodynamic. The vineyard is situated on a 360 meter high slope and is essentially a mixture of limestone from the Vosges, chalky marl and layers of red, brown, green and beige sediment which produce fuller bodied wines that are a little untamed in youth (Hengst means stallion) but develop intense aromatics, complexity and richness with age. Hand harvested. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Aged 18 months on the lees in large century old foudres. RS 4g/l

Wonderful Riesling nose. Hint of petroleum, mineral, lemon, peach with a touch of honey and marmalade. The palate is rich, long & fine. Lemon & mineral.
