Josmeyer Pinot Blanc 'Mise du Printemps' 2021
- 14 in stock
Domaine Josmeyer, in the village of Wintzenheim, near Colmar, has been around since 1854. Certified biodynamic in 2001, they own 25 hectares of immaculately tended vineyard around the village. The wines are wonderfully precise. This Auxerrois (80%) and Pinot Blanc (20%) blend from 35 year old vines is the bargain of the range, and one of our all-time favourites. Perfectly balanced, it is a truly delicious, soft, subtle wine with many layers of complexity.
Praise for the 2020 vintage:
So much more character than most Pinot Blancs: there’s some green-apple fruit and a touch of white mushroom, ripe lemon, and there is also a definite mineral spiciness that is so much more to do with the place than the variety. Soft and rounded on the palate even though there is a slight impression of the texture from the skin contact. Long peppery aftertaste. A complex Pinot Blanc for sure. Remarkably mouth-filling with such modest alcohol.
