DESCRIPTION :

A dry white wine with a very intense nose. Our Riesling is remarkable for its very fruity aromas of peach, candied citrus fruits as well as small delicate notes of minerality. It is lively on the palate and possesses all that you would expect of this vintage and terroir. It also has long-lasting longevity, which makes it an excellent vin de garde.

MÉTHODES DE VINIFICATION ET D'ÉLEVAGE :

Traditional vinification and cultivation method. The grapes are harvested manually and then progressively pressed in a pneumatic press in order to extract the juice and aromas. The naturally present yeast on the grapes will start the alcoholic fermentation process that will change the grape juice into wine. Temperature controls are conducted throughout the fermentation process in order to guarantee persistence and balance. Two to three months after the fermentation process, the wine is racked in order to start maturing. Before bottling, each vat is filtered in order to guarantee the organic stability and conservation of the wine.

TEMPS DE GARDE : 8 years.
CONSEILS GASTRONOMIQUES :

Our Riesling goes well with shellfish, fish (grilled, baked or in a buttery or creamy sauce). It can also be served with pike perch, monkfish, scallops and frogs’ legs. It can also be served alongside cold starters and poultry cooked in sauce.
