Soft, rich, aromatic, fat and very tonic wine.
At the top of the small pass separating Bergheim from Ribeauvillé, the Huebuhl (literally, the early and humid place), a slight depression gently sloping towards the south, joining the Gruenspiel to the west and the Rotenberg to the east, produces expressive wines: an envelope of almonds, zest, fat and toasted, a deep acid structure marked by cold lacustrine clays and luminous and windy autumns that channel and contain the Noble Rot.
