Description

SOIL, CULTURE 

Clay-limestone soil.

The vines are grown using traditional Alsace methods, respecting the “AOC Alsace” specifications.

The estate has taken the step towards organic farming by starting its conversion in 2019.

Always mindful of the environment, we work our soils in order to preserve biodiversity in our plots.

Yields are controlled in order to have the pure expression of each of our terroirs.

HARVEST & WINE-MAKING

Manual harvesting to protect our grapes, followed by pneumatic pressing allows us to press the grapes gently, for a fine extraction of high quality.

Fermentation temperatures are controlled by cooling.

After maturing for a few months in our stainless steel tanks, our wines are bottled after a fine tangential filtration to stabilize them.

Storage in bottles in our cellars at a constant temperature.

COMMENTARY

It’s a delicately fruity and racy wine of great freshness. In addition to the mineral side, there are pear peel and candied lemon notes.

The palate is concentrated and vivid, with a lively and intense freshness with notes of citrus (yellow lemon, blood orange, grapefruit), cherry-plum and linden.

The mineral tension is perceptible and will evolve with the time.

WINE AND FOOD

It goes perfectly with fish, shellfish, seafood but also poultry and sauce preparations such as veal blanquette or Coq… au Riesling.

Very nice with fresh and goat cheeses.
