A full-bodied wine with an intensive aroma of ripe fruits.
The name ‘Weiss Erd’ (White Earth) refers to the pale marl which turns snow-white when dry.
This site is characterised by the close proximity to the confluence of the Main and Rhine rivers which results in a warm and balanced micro-climate with the south-facing slope receiving high levels of solar radiation. These conditions ensure that the grapes mature slowly over a long period of time
At the same time, the sandy and gravelly soils give the wine acidity, and the calcareous subsoil imparts minerality, yet the acidity of this mineral-rich wine is well buffered and so appears agreeably soft on the palate.
JAMES SUCKLING SAYS: “A giant out of nowhere! Almost nobody heard of this site, but this wine is of grand cru stature. Enormous ripeness, but also enormous freshness and salty minerality. Drink through 2035.” 96 POINTS
