It very goes well with shrimp tartare ...

History: 

The Sylvaner grape variety first appeared in Lower Alsace towards the end of the 18th century, and came from Austria. It is the most widespread grape variety in Alsace, particularly in the Lower Rhine.

Location: 

Sylvaner mostly comes from the Bux plot but also from the Grand Cru Kessler plot.

Wine-Making: 

Pneumatic pressing, static racking. Fermentation in thermo controlled stainless steel tuns. Bottled during the year of production.

Tasting: 

The robe is golden yellow with clear reflections, of good intensity. The disc is limpid, bright and transparent. The wine is opened.

The nose is frank and pleasant, with a beautiful intensity. We can perceive fine odours with fruity dominance : citrus fruit, lemon zest, lemon, spices and ginger. Airing enhances the previous odours and reveals blooming fragrances, wax, hops. The nose offers a very beautiful varietal profile. We can feel the exemplary maturity of the grapes.

The onset in the mouth is medium-bodied and vigorous. We perceive a hint of sweetness. The wine evolves on a sharp and edgy medium, marked by a sparkling note. The range of aromas is essentially fruity, with citrus fruit, lemon and lemon zest along with hops and white pepper. The finish has good length, 6-7 caudalies and a frank vivacity. Although marked by a slight roundness, the balance of this wine is very pleasant and remains typical.

Gastronomy: 

I would like to enjoy this wine in the beginning of a meal to accompany a shrimp tartare or tapas of prawns with ginger. It goes very well in combination with sheep's cheeses. To be served at a temperature of 12°C.
