Jean-Marie Haag

The wine-growing village of Soultzmatt is 20 km to the south of Colmar, and this flourishing community is at the heart of the Vallé Noble. From the 11th to the 16th century, various noble families built as many as seven chateaux in the area, and henceforth it came to be known as "vallis praenobilis", eminently noble valley.Climate, sun exposure and earth make up the alchemy of the terroir. It is the terroir that gives these remarkable wines their finesse, length and elegance. At the foot of the Vosges mountains, the vineyards benefit from natural protection from summer storms and westerly winds.Vineyards are predominantly on sloping hillside sites, curving steeply, at some points more than 40%, allowing maximum sun exposure. During the vine's growing period, from April to September, they benefit from 1750 hours of sun, almost the same as in Bordeaux. Subsoil is predominantly chalk, with some sand and limestone.In the cellar, Jean-Marie tailors his wine-making with the sole aim of producing top quality wines - tastetesting of the grapes, monitoring of seeds and finally testing of density and acidity, both before and during grape harvest - all are meticulously carried out with a view to selecting the precise date of harvesting the grapes at their optimum ripeness. These tasks are carried out entirely by hand.At the winery, whole grapes are used for pressing, and fermentation takes place slowly, under temperature control to allow the wines to retain all of their aromatic qualities.

Yuri Nemkov, Flat Three

I have received my first delivery of this wine and tasted it with my colleagues. The wine is pale lemon colour with medium intensity and greenish hues on the rim, it also has medium intensity on the nose with flavours of lemon, peach, ginger and pineapple; a whiff of minerality can be sensed too reminiscent of wet pebbles and notes of petroleum peeking through showing development and adding complexity to the wine. On the palate the wine is dry with eye wincing acidity balancing the intensity of the flavour which generally confirms the nose with lemon, but also pink grapefruit, ripe peach, a pinch of crushed ginger stem, slice of pineapple and green juicy Granny Smith apples are present. This Riesling has impresively long lingering finish with strong mineral undertone.
