Kumpf & Meyer, Pet Nat R Riesling is a sparkling (ancestrale method) made from Riesling, with no added SO2. The nose is complex, dried flowers, candied orange, zesty hints. Broad and rich on the palate with a sense of slight sweetness, ripe orange, white apple and flowery aromas; the ending is dry and refreshing (think lemon sorbet).
DOMAINE KUMPF & MEYER, Julien Albertus, Rosheim
With about 16 hectares spread over more than 70 parcels of vines, the Domaine extends 15 kilometres from north to south passing through 5 communes. The domaine was founded by Sophie Kumpf and Philippe Meyer in 1990, they have been working following organic principles from the beginning.
In 2010, Philippe left the domaine, Julien Albertus arrived, bringing new energy and ideas. He implemented biodynamic methods in the vineyards, as a way to 'fully express the true potential of each terroir.' Julien has a soft and light hand approach in the cellar, rejecting the use of additives and hard manipulation, preferring gentle extraction. His wine are amongst the purest and most expressive that can be found in Alsace today.
