Country: France, Alsace
Tasting Notes: Young, pale pistachio colour with prevailing green hints, a touch of pastel yellow and lime, lively and star-bright, it clings softly to the glass. The bouquet is frank, lively, clean and open, with agreeable notes of fruit (green apple, lemon balm, citronella, ginger, cardamom...) and flowers (spring blossom, almond, primrose...) with a finely honed minerality so typical of Riesling from an excellent terroir.
The palate is nicely vivacious and fresh, agreeably dry with the very fine acidity of ripe grapes, still thirst-quenching despite its distinguished body and structure. The wine is crystal-clear, well balanced and harmonious, with a clean, scented finish.
A very fine Riesling of great class, with the subtle touch of minerality that will enable it to age well.
Varietal: 100% Riesling
Pairing: A highly gastronomic wine to be served at 8°C, with turbot, sea perch, monkfish, lobster, crayfish, seafood, pike and pike-perch. After several years in bottle, serve it with roast or creamed chicken, rack of veal with mushrooms, pork belly...
