It has a youthful robe with an intense pale green colour, dominated with the green and pale yellow highlights of springtime lime tree foliage, all completed with a silvery sheen. Brilliant aspect with narrow but quite rounded legs. The bouquet is still a bit discreet and fresh, not too arrogant, it is harmonious, clear and well-stated yet quite dense and fruity with hints of lime, fresh kiwi, lemon-grass, 'Mirabelle', greengage and a slightly mineral edge. This is a dry wine that is also fresh and lovingly thirst-quenching on the palate, it is well-balanced with a generous and well-formed structure underlined by the wonderful freshness and vigour which is so typical to this grape variety's elegant temperament. The grapes are perfectly ripe. This is a wine which can be consumed immediately but would benefit from being laid down for up to 5 years which would intensify the density and minerality of its aroma.

Grapes 100% Riesling
Production technique Made exclusively from hand harvested grapes from predominantly clay and limestone vineyards, in a dozen of the most favored localities in and around Riquewihr. A cool and long growing season give this unique dry wine great finesse and unequalled intensity.
Vinification The grapes are taken in small tubs to the presses, which are filled by gravity, without any pumping or other mechanical intervention. After pressing, the must is decanted for a few hours, then fermented in temperature-controlled barrels or vats (at 18 to 24°C). The wine is racked just once, before natural clarification during the course of the winter. The following spring, the wine is lightly filtered just before bottling, and the bottles are then aged in our cellars until released for sale.

Matching Would make an excellent aperitif. Best served with turbot, sea bass, monk-fish, lobster, king prawns, seafood, sander, pike, salmon, scallops, marinated or raw fish carpaccio, goat's cheese.
