Tasting Notes

Bitter lemons and orange pith, as well as barely ripe nectarines and loquat. Medium-to full-bodied with raw power to the acidity and crystalline purity to the citrus fruit. Long and mineral on the finish. Drink now or hold. 95 points. - Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com December 2019

The beautiful winery and home of the Christmann family can be found in the town of Gimmeldingen. This quaint little village is in the centre of the Mittelhaart of the Pfalz, about an hour from Frankfurt & half an hour from Strasbourg, in the Palantine, that lies on the Rhine River and connects Alsace in the north to Rheinhessen in the south.

The story of this brilliant and historic estate dates back to the 16th Century and the French Republic that once ruled the village of Gimmeldingen as well as the greater Palantine region.

In 1798 the area was transformed after the local nobility fled, and after the church were relieved of their sovereign rights. Georg Köhler, an ancient ancestor of the Christmann family, seized the opportunity to acquire some land and laid the original foundations of what would become the Christmann estate that we know and adore today.

Skip forward a few hundred years & a few generations to the present day, and the estate today is managed under the watchful eye of the superstar father-&-daughter duo that is Steffen & Sophie Christmann.

Today, the 18Ha of organic and biodynamically-run family vineyards remain located in the traditional Mittelhaardt of the Palantine, primarily located in the villages of Gimmeldingen, Königsbach and Neustadt. The Palantine soils are dominated by red sandstone, however in Gimmeldingen and Konigsbach, a slab of tertiary limestone is prevalent, thus making the area especially suited to cultivating high quality Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes.
