Alsace Terroirs White

Our Terroir Wines come from specific places, each providing particular complexity to the wines. Our ultimate goal in the vineyard, but also in the cellar, is to allow our wines to fully express these terroirs.

 

There also are Wines coming from the Grand Cru Kirchberg controlled appellation. Those vines require more than a decade to reach the deep mother rock and draw a minerality that will be revealed by wines.

Best consumed : 10 to 15 years

Sweetness : 

1 : Dry wine

2 : Middle dry wine

3 : Middle sweet

4 : Sweet wine

5 : Liquor-like wine

Ribeauvillé Riesling

A.O.C (French quality wines)

Type : dry white wine

Sweetness : 1 

Terroir :

Late parcels on south-east facing slopes. There is one small parcel in the lower part of the Osterberg Grand Cru, and two others close to the Kirchberg Grand Cru.

Comment for the 2017 vintage

This Ribeauvillé Riesling is more complex than our regular Riesling. It develops white flowers and pineaple touches on the nose. The mouth is crunchy and powerful but keep a nice balance and elegance thanks to this ripe aciditity coming from the terroir. 

Food and wine pairing :

Preferably drunk between 8 and 10 ° C. Riesling is an excellent food wine. It has a natural affinity with fish in a cream sauce, traditional or fish sauerkraut, “Coq au Riesling”, and some soft cheeses.

Best consumed : within 4 to 6 years.

Intense and open nose on ripe fruits (exotic) aromas, lightly smoked. Full-bodied in the palate, rich and lightly round wine with grilled-smoked notes in the final.

Hagel Riesling

A.O.C (French quality wines)

Type : dry white wine

Sweetness : 1

Terroir :

One of the rare Ribeauvillé parcel planted on a gneiss terroir (decaying rock, very old, close to granite in composition) whereas other Ribeauville terroirs are principally chalky-marl based. This vineyard is in terrace as the land is very steep and rocks are close to the surface. East/south-east exposure.

Comment for the 2016 vintage :

This wine opens clear, fresh and fine on the nose with refreshing lemon and white flowers notes. The mouth is crystalline and delicate with lovely mineral notes and a chiseled acidity. This delicate Riesling has a tense, salty and lingering finish.

 

Food and wine pairing :

Preferably drunk between 10 and 12 ° C. Beautifully matched with raw fish in citrus marinade, napolitan spaghetti (tomato and anchovies) or linguini alle vongole.
