Details

Pinot Noir Herrenweg Josmeyer is a ripe and fresh. single vineyard biodynamic wine. From the Herrenweg vineyard between Wintzenheim and Turckheim, which produces, in their own words: 'soft and sensual' wines. This wine deserves to be treated like a Grand Cru - one of the best Pinot Noirs available. Tasting Josmeyer wines, you are struck by their freshness, their precision allied to deceptive weight and body particularly in the Grand Crus!

Josmeyer was founded in 1854 by restaurant owner Aloyse Meyer who set about building on his father’s work in the wine trade. Since then, the estate has passed through 5 generations of the Meyer family, with Jean Meyer - responsible for most of the wines we stock today - taking over in 1966. In 2000 he switched the entire estate to organic and biodynamic culture. He is credited with elevating the estate to one of Alsace’s greats, and with injecting the wines with their unique sense of cultural place by combining his love of contemporary art with his produce. After his death earlier this year, his daughters Celine and Isabelle took over running of the estate.



The 28 hectare estate is situated at Wintzenheim, and benefits from low annual rainfall, some of the lowest in France. Riesling and Pinot Blanc are given the largest sections of the estate, with Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Gewurztraminer also growing here. Organic certification was given in 2004 and all the wines are made with the upmost respect for the terroirs. 5 distinct terroirs make up the estat, 2 of which have achieved Grand Cru status: Hengst and Brand. Vines are planted at a minimum of 5200 per hectare. Once hand picked, the grapes undergo gentle pressing followed by natural fermentation in their 100 year old casks, where they also receive some lees ageing.



Josmeyer’s wines are characterised by freshness, complexity and minerality, with each of the 5 terroirs contributing to different expressions of the grapes. These are true wines of character, and though their labels may suggest a certain playfulness, they are certainly serious wines.
