In 2009, I was exploring the producers of Turckheim. Among them, they are quite few, I stumbled across Mme Herzog, widow of the late Emile Herzog who worked for INAO for several decades. Today, Mme Herzog farms a mere 1.4 ha of prime vineyards, some of which are located in the garden of her suburban villa! Literally, this is a "garage vinery" and the 5000-7000 are bottled and labeled by hand. The vineyards are worked with horses and Mme Herzog has state-of-the-art knowledge about every phase of the winemaking process.
2007 Riesling Langgass has ginger, apples and orange blossoms on the nose. The taste is so clean, so fresh and so homogeneous. A marvelous wine made by a remarkable woman! Price: € 7.60.
I had missed this blog, but very nice read!
Hej Ulrik, kul att få kommentar. Jag hoppas att fler läser den...
Kul med en Alsaceblogg, det skrivs på tok för lite om detta underbara distrikt men det verkar det bli ändring på nu!
Verkligen! Jag hoppas samla på mig material under sommarens (första) resa nu om några veckor. Och tack för dina fina texter!
