Winemaker Notes:  Clos Häuserer is located just below the limit of the Grand Cru Hengst on the village of Wintzenheim, where the slope changes for a less steep exposure towards the east. The soil is a slope colluvium, namely the marl-calcaro-sandstone mother rock of the Oligocene period is covered with a good meter of marls and clay that originates from the hill above. This deep and iron-rich terroir matures slowly in a warm and precocious meso-climate, protected from the winds by the surrounding hill. The Riesling still retains a very good acidity and the wine of this Clos is recognized by its ability to age. Planted in 1973 by Léonard Humbrecht, this Clos of 1.2ha produced in 2020 healthy, ripe grapes which gave a wine which took a year to finish its fermentation!

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


James Suckling - "A lot of riesling freaks say the grape needs stony soils, but here’s a beautiful example of how well it can do on clay-rich soil. So much citrus and peach here, even though there’s still a touch of youthful leeriness. Rich and powerful, it also has a very firm core behind the breathtaking succulence. Already great integration of concentration, fine tannins and bright acidity through the very long and complete finish. From biodynamically grown grapes."
