  • The Heimbourg of Turckheim is a small vineyard sloping 35% to the west, facing the east side of the Brand, then turning abruptly towards the south with the slope increasing to over 50%. The heterogeneous nature of the terroir leads to a diversity of grape varieties planted in this small cru, including Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. The wines produced on the Heimbourg are rich, opulent, often spicy and can include noble rot. The slower ripening of the grapes often produces wines that are aromatically expressive from a young age.

Wine Spectator: 93
"This really lights up the palate. Lots of power in this ripe, dense Pinot Gris. The crème brûlée, violet and guava flavors are deep and intense, set against an ironlike structure that blazes with minerality on the finish.” (Apr 1999)
