  • Tasting Note: Elegant old vine Riesling from this prestigious Alsace estate, fragrant with lime flowers and the racy juices of grapefruit and lime.
  • Food Matching: A complex and full-bodied Riesling with high acidity. Best paired with shell-fish, seafood, pork, poultry, veal as well as Asian-fusion cuisine.
  • Vineyard: The vines are 50 years old from Ribeauvillé area, from parcels with marl and limestone soil. Handpicked as late as possible in order to achieve maximum ripeness, which in turn, gives optimum depth of flavour and complexity.
  • Vinification: The grapes are pressed very gently in a pneumatic press. The juice ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for 3 to 4 weeks. The wine is not oak-aged, and is vinified to complete dryness with no residual sugar. Bottling is done early to preserve freshness, and the wine rests in bottle in the cellar for several years before being released.
