The Goldert Grand Cru is located on the east facing vineyard next to the village of Gueberschwihr. Its deep marl limestone soil makes it usually less precocious. However, in 2015, this vineyard didn’t suffer from drought and the heat allowed these grapes to ripen very fast. Usually harvested much later than Turckheim, the Goldert was actually harvested first. The Oolithic limestone is made of compacted minuscule little shells (visible with a 10X magnifying lens) and provides a formidable potential. Despite the high ripeness level, this wine fermented slowly and quite far, producing a wonderful dry style Muscat.
