Tasting Notes:

The colour is lemon yellow with light green reflections, of average intensity. The wine shows youth.The nose is marked and pleasant, with a deep intensity. Racy, we perceive a dominant of rich aromas, candied, fruity, citrus fruits, lemon, orange, spices and ginger. Airing enhances the previously perceived aromas, it strengthens the citrus fruits and reveals a delicate and flinty mineral trace. The nose plays on a register characterising this 'fresher" vintage. However, the range of scents maintains a nice overall precision. The onset in the mouth is dense, fleshy and compact. The alcohol support is balanced. The wine evolves in a clean and lively medium, pithy and marked by a sparkling note.

Ranked among the best wines in the world, the Riesling is one of Alsace's biggest successes. Introduced in the 15th century, and originating from the Orleanois region, it is different from its German counterpart and from the numerous Riesling, which can now be found a little all over the world. A late-ripening grape variety, it continues to ripen at low temperatures, but gives marvelous results when there is a sunny, dry, late summer. First distinguished in 1699, Kitterlé has always had an exceptional reputation. Already protected in the middle ages, it has been sold under its own name since 1830.

The grape are hand-picked.

Whole grape pressing, static racking. Fermentation in thermocontrolled tuns for 1 to 4 months.

Ageing on fine lees for 8 months.

Food pairing

Enjoy this wine before the meal, with a scampi salad and sweet spices or a lobster carpaccion and fennel. Ideal with a dry goat cheese such as Picodon from the Drôme.
