Founded in 1854 by Aloyse Meyer, the house of Josmeyer is now run by Céline Meyer, representing the fifth generation, assisted by her sister Isabelle Meyer who is in charge of the cellar. Situated amid the communes of Wintzenhiem, Turkheim and Wettolsheim, the Josmeyer domaine covers an area of 25 ha, of which 5 are the slopes of the AOC Grand Cru Brand and Hengst vineyards.

The domaine has been worked fully to biodynamic principles since 2000, having been organic for many years prior to this, in accordance with the family’s conviction that “the pursuit of excellence in harmony with the earth” will express both terroir and varietal character more dramatically.

Soft sensual wines are produced from the flat alluvial deposits in the valley, whilst the combined calcareous and marl soils of the 360 metre high Hengst vineyard yield rich, full-bodied wines and those from the deep granite soil of Brand are incisive and fine structured. Artificial chemicals and fertilisers are prohibited and the soil is maintained by ploughing (with oxen) and green cover.

The average age of the vines is 25 years and with hard pruning and the use of only natural fertilisers, yields at Josmeyer are far lower than the average for Alsace.

Riesling ‘Le Kottabe’ 2014

Varietal: 100% Riesling

Residual Sugar: 4 g/l
Oak-ageing: Unoaked
Closure: Natural cork

Tasting Note:

Soft notes of blossom and apricot strike a gentle balance in this wine, with hints of ripe, juicy apple on the dry but wonderfully aromatic palate. The more you sip, the more nuances appear: nettle, grapefruit peel, white currant and peach. It offers a sprightly and weightless body despite the flavour concentration.

Pinot Gris ‘Le Fromenteau’ 2014

Varietal: 100% Pinot Gris
Alcohol: 14%
Residual Sugar: 7 g/l
Oak-ageing: Unoaked
Closure: Natural Cork

Tasting Note:

Smoky and ripe notes of Comice pear mingle with the honeyed spice of gingerbread on the nose of this wine. The palate counters this aromatic richness with a steely, concentrated core of fresh citrus with apple and quince notes. It offers a great play-off of richness and utter precision; for a wonderful expression of 2014. This wine will continue to develop.
