DOMAINE KUMPF & MEYER, Julien Albertus, Rosheim – Organic
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. There are various “terroirs” in the different areas of Keeping the vines healthy is achieved whilst keeping the use of chemicals to a strict minimum. The domaine adheres to the charter “Tyflo” which is administered by Ecocert. Following these principles, the various summer tasks are performed successively during July and August: – de-budding, tying and training, removing excess bunches where necessary to promote the quality of the remaining grapes (vendange en vert), and thinning the leaves.
The Riesling is a classic Alsace style with gentle line of acidity framing blossoms and exotic fruits – later picked fruit gives the palate quite a broad feel and slightly oily with ginger and stone fruits. Long and mouth-watering finish.
