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

The robe is lemon yellow with light green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. We perceive a dominant of crystallized and overripe scents, honey but also citrus fruits, lemon, white flowers and fine vegetal notes. The airing enhances the previous scents and reveals fine and complex fruity notes, yuzu zest and a note of hops.
The nose reflects a ripe and healthy raw material. Still a bit tight, time will be a good ally. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample with a balanced alcohol support. The wine evolves on a strict and vertical medium, marked by a sparkling note. The range of flavours is similar of that nose, dominated by citrus fruits, lemon zest, fine vegetal notes and white flowers. The finish has a good length, 5-6 caudalies, and a frank and persistent liveliness.
The structure is slender and chiseled, strident. In a few months, the aromatic profile will be more “expressive”.
