The annual cycle of work, parallel with cycle of nature, consists of a number of interventions, comprising biological treatments against the diseases and others aiming at improving the quality. mong the latter, the pruning is particularly decisive. Too severe, it prevents the harmonious development of the vine, insufficient, the vine will overproduce unripen grapes. A this moment, the presence of Paul’s grandson Pierre-Paul Humbrecht, is of utmost importance to the vineyard, to prune correctly and at the right time. Given unfavourable climatic conditions, the harvest may suffer but when the seasons flow normally the right pruning will be rewarded by a juice of very high quality. hen the vine has had its budburst, the disbudding (selection of branches) and desuckering (supression of the growths resulting from sucker from the trunk), are made manually to avoid any harmful effect to the vine. During the bloom, trimming consists in shortening the end of the branches leaving just the right quantity of good quality leafs that the young vine needs. During ripening, the stripping to improve the exposure of the grapes to the sun and thinning out the grapes in excess must be done with precision in order to obtain a harvest of great quality. orking the ground consists of several heavy duty work. Hilling up the vine, ploughing down and plowing between the rows of vine are accomplished each year. Naturally, Pierre-Paul Humbrecht is using the latest agricultural technologies to ease the task while remaining in harmony with nature, thus our advance towards biological agriculture or rather the search of our origins towards the Earth...

Simply put, stunning. Sweet, sweet apple and kiwi, a hint of butter and a beautiful golden amber. I'm not a huge Riesling drinker but can easily come back to this one.

Old vines contribute to the concentration of this wine, young vines to its balance. The result is brimful of stunning floral and lychee aromas with a touch of residual sugar. There are definitely some aromas and flavors of botrytis here too.

Pale orange-gold. Aromas of pineapple, rose petal and orange oil, plus a suggestion of more exotic fruits. Creamy, spicy and rich, but with the brisk acidity and supporting minerality to support its considerable sweetness. The exotic fruit suggestions carry through on the palate, with a pepperminty note perking up the finish.

A dry white, with an overall elegance and flavors of lychee, yellow peach and white pepper. A nice thread of smoky minerality builds to the finish. Drink now through 2013.

Therersquo;s good vibrancy to the acidity in this dry, tangy version, with lots of grapefruit and citrus peel up front. Finishes with the floral and white pepper notes typical of the variety. Drink now through 2012.

This deeply colored dry white is loaded with layers of star fruit, grapefruit, rose, cream and spice, all underscored by a lightly smoky mineral element. The firm structure and defined acidity are filled in by the fleshy texture, with a lingering finish of white pepper and sweet fruit. Drink now through 2025.
