'It offers a sprightly and weightless body despite the flavour concentration, celebrating full-flavoured purity.'

  • Founded in 1854 by Aloyse Meyer, the house of Josmeyer is now run by Céline Meyer, representing the fifth generation, assisted by Christophe Ehrhart in charge of viticulture and by her sister Isabelle Meyer 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.


    Having worked their vineyards on organic principles for many years, since 2000 the Domaine has moved towards a full conversion to biodynamic culture in accordance with their 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 mechanical cultivation 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.

    Alc/vol -11.5%


    'Soft notes of blossom and apricot strike a gentle tone 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, celebrating full-flavoured purity.'

    'The 2014 Riesling Le Kottabe has a clear, nicely intense and spicy flavoured bouquet of white fruits along with vegetal flavours. On the palate this is a very elegant, fresh, piquant and salty Riesling with great purity; but it also has intensity and a stimulating grip. Excellent! Classic style.'
