Description

The robe is lemon-­‐yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. Dominant overripe, crystallized, fruity scents, citrus, lemon, honey and sweet spices. The airing enhances the previous scents and reveals ginger and complex fine floral notes. The nose presents a perfect state of health as well as an exemplary level of maturity. The expression is very pleasant and distinguished. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample with a balanced alcohol support. The wine evolves on a sharp, incisive medium, marked by a sparkling note. The range of flavours is similar of that of the nose, dominated by citrus, crystallized lemon, honey, flowers, spices and ginger. The finish has a good length, 6-­‐7 caudalies, and a frank liveliness. The balance of this wine is centered on freshness and structure. The range of aromas marvelously brings out the elegance of this splendid grape variety.

This Riesling is planted essentially in the locality of Bollenberg and in the vines of Saering and Kessler, and also in the young vineyards of the Kitterlé.

Slow pneumatic pressing, static racking. Fermentation in thermo-regulated tuns for one to four months. Matured on lees during six to eight months.

The Riesling is the noblest and finest grape variety of Alsace. Introduced in the 15th century from Rhineland, it is supposed to be in fact originating from the Orleans region. It is very different from its German homologue and from the many other Rieslings that are now appearing all over the world.

Food Pairing: Serve with an assortment of seafood, sea urchin oursinade or Japenese Cuisine, shrimp makis with yuzu, or fresh goats cheese! Serve at 12°C.

Good price I think for a very reasonable Alsace Dry Riesling

A nice Alsace Riesling if a tiny bit expensive.
