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.
Our 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.
Do not hesitate to combine it with small avocado, crab and shrimp verrines, a
seafood casserole with ginger, conchiglioni stuffed with goat cheese and
walnuts, lemon butter sauce with coriander or a cheese made with milk from
goat cheese… Serving temperature: 12°C.

The color is lemon yellow with green reflections, of good intensity. The disc is
bright, limpid and transparent. The wine presents youth.
The nose is frank, pleasant, of good intensity. Dominated by citrus scents, lime
zest, white flowers, fine vegetal, and blackcurrant leaf. Airing amplifies these
smells and reveals an exotic register of star fruit, spices, ginger and noble
smoke. The nose presents a ripe and bright register, in the vein of the vintage.
The grapes were brought in at the perfect time.
The attack on the palate is moderately full, full-bodied. We evolve in a sharp,
sparkling environment. The range of aromas is reminiscent of the nose, citrus
fruits, lime zest, white flowers, fine vegetal, spices, ginger and always, in filigree,
this underlying smoke. The finish is medium, 5-6 caudalies, and frank liveliness.
The tense balance, typical of the vintage, is digest and precise. The racy range
of aromas provides a nice sensation of freshness.
