About

After hearing about Johannes Jülg from K-P Keller, wine makers, merchants and sommeliers, our interest was piqued. Our curiosity lead us to this special Riesling and Pinot 'rising star' estate that has half of its vineyards in France and half in Germany! Johannes is third generation and enthusiastically took over the 20ha estate in 2010, after 7 years of experience working at Keller, Clemens Busch and Clos des Lambrays amongst others. Johannes is an energetic, deep-thinking and enthusiastic vigneron. He has no recipe for any wine, but he prefers to listen and watch, and follow what nature, the vines and the soils dictate. His soils vary from limestone to red sandstone, including blends of both. The sites on the French side of the border are part of Northern Alsace, and those on the German side are in the Pfalz. The wines are all estate grown by Jülg and labelled as such. His Rieslings are a masterclass in texture. A strong belief in phenolic ripeness and gentle extraction (by feet!), as well as the use of both stainless steel and old oak results in wines of purity and honesty that provide bright expressions of their terroir. Similarities can more easily be drawn with the wines of the Rheinhessen than with the more geographically proximate Alsace. - Importer Note

Tasting Notes

Very cool and reserved, but with great underplayed power, this is in every sense a very serious wine. Major structure crammed into a sleek package. Stunning depth at the very long, herbal and mineral finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
