Dr. Heger

Baden | Ihringen

Just a few miles from the French border, in Germany’s southernmost region of Baden, Joachim Heger farms the extraordinary grand crus of Ihringer Winklerberg and Achkarrer Schlossberg. On these steep, volcanic slopes, Joachim gives voice to unique, delicious, ageworthy expressions of pinot noir. For close to 40 vintages, his work has revolutionized the way we can interpret the potential of this ancient wine region. Joachim made a name for himself and Baden with pinot noir, but he also embraces classic Germanic varieties, foremost riesling and silvaner, by allowing each to work its magic on the unique volcanic, loess, and limestone soils.

Dr. Heger 2013 Pinot Gris

Forget what you think about pinot gris and try this wine. In Joachim’s opinion, pinot gris is the estate’s most important white variety and he sure makes excellent use of it. This is bright and refreshing with crisp structure and surprising length. It is completely dry and lacks waxiness and fat, what are so common in its Alsatian counterparts just across the border.
