K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Clear and limpid robe, deep and thick. Before aeration, the first nose is quite vinous and discrete with yellow fruit and fresh bread. After aeration, the nose becomes brighter and more powerful, even "drier," with, as always, limestone brightness, vanilla, noble wood, leather and orange peel, allusions to Oligocene. The palate is voluminous but tense, with flamboyant acidity and richness, long and powerful, totally dry, robust, strong as a fortress, an oppidum above the plains. On the finish, vibrant lemon fruit, and at the very end, a lightning strike of salivant limestone acidity. Dominant Sigolsheim, the Mambourg is the most precocious hillside among the vineyards. Known since the Middle Ages, many monasteries and lords had owned this land and gave it their credentials. Beneficing from a maximum duration of sunshine, its magnesium soil grows on the conglomerated limestone and marl hills of Tertiary Era. This particular geology from Quaternary Oligocene limestone grants Mambourg a very rare characteristic: powerful tannins always presented and a round smooth in the palate. Our low-trained vines, planted with all the Pinots in an intensity of 12,700 vine/hectare, produce between 15 and 20 hl / ha: wines are always perfectly dry with an exaggerated power and an extreme complexity."
