Tasting notes

Appearance : Pale yellow in colour, with bright green tinges that emphasize its characteristic freshness.
Nose : The bouquet is elegant and racy, with delicate fruity aromas (lemon, grapefruit, pear, stewed fruits…) and flowers (white flowers). It also offers aromas of anise, liquorice and fennel seeds. As it evolves, our Riesling is unique thanks to our granit soil, it develops mineral aromas (gun powder, flint, mint, etc.).
Palate : This dry wine displays great vertical structure. It is characterized by intense freshness that can be appreciated from start to finish, whilst the mid-palate is defined by opulence and richness. The body, both racy and delicately fruity, makes this wine an ideal partner for haute cuisine.

Food pairing

Riesling is an excellent food wine. In addition to pairing naturally with traditional Alsace dishes such as Choucroute and pork-based dishes, it has a natural affinity with fish and shellfish, such as scallops, almost iodene flavours of the sea. It is also delicious with poultry, white meats and even goat’s cheese.

The wine

Riesling is the Rhineland’s ultimate varietal and the Rhine Valley is recognized the world over as its birthplace.
