Pierrets, from the word “pierre” (stone), evokes the signature minerality of Riesling. The nose is bright with notes of lemongrass and verbena. On the palate, this wine's complexity shines: at first it shows its power and firmness before lingering on a long and fine acidity.
How to Enjoy
Domaine Josmeyer is a five-generation family estate. Jean Meyer led the estate’s organic and biodynamic conversion in the early 2000s, before his daughters Isabelle and Céline took over in 2009. The interplay of art, poetry and winemaking is integral to their Alsatian varietal wines, with Isabelle herself designing the Josmeyer labels.
