"This is really deep and dense with a long, long finish. It's full-bodied plus has mineral, salt and dried fruits. Very powerful with a super finish that's generous and sexy."
(James Suckling, jamessuckling.com)
"Clos Sainte Hune is a 1,67 hectares exceptional stony argilo-calcaire, or Muschelkalk, limestone terroir, exclusively planted in Riesling, located in the heart of Grand Cru Rosacker, in Hunawihr.
The calcary soil allows this Riesling to develop a specific aroma and a wonderful concentration of fruits. Dry yet succulent, of phenomenal complexity, this wine develops an extraordinary aftertaste of minerals after a few years in bottle. The plot, which is approximately 50 to 70 years old, is south south east exposed and the yields are low. Annual production reaches about 9000 bottles, depending on the vintage. That makes the wine so unique that Clos Sainte Hune is looked for by many collectors all over the world.
We pick the grapes as late as possible in order to achieve maximum ripeness which, in turn, gives optimum depth of flavour and complexity. The grapes are picked by hand and pressed gently in a pneumatic press. The juice runs into the cellar by gravity and clarifies naturally prior fermentation. The juice ferment in stainless steel at controlled temperature for 3 or 4 weeks. The wine is vinified to complete dryness.
No oak ageing, because we believe it does not bring anything to our wines, except hiding the fruits, the flowers and moreover the salient characteristics of which are extreme purity and concentrated fruits. Bottling is early to preserve freshness. Wines are bottle-aged for several years before leaving the winery, especially CSH, for minimum 6 years."
