APPELLATION ALSACE CONTRÔLÉE
HARVEST : 100% manual
VINIFICATION : The grapes are put in the pneumatic press without crushing, and the pressing is long and smooth in order to preserve the purity of the aromas. Wild-yeast fermentation during 8-10 months in our old oak casks. Estate bottled.
WHEN TO DRINK IT? Best enjoyed on the freshness of its youth in the 4 years following the bottling.
TASTING NOTES : Expressive on the nose with notes of citrus fruits, dry in mouth with nice acidity.
PAIRING : perfect with the Alsatian specialties : sauerkraut or rooster in a Riesling sauce for instance. It accompanies mussels and shellfish. Its nice acidity is great with Raclette, Tartiflette, or other dishes with cooked cheese.
HOW TO SERVE IT : At 10°C. Better when opened an hour before pouring. There can be some natural CO2, please decant if too much. Some lees in the bottles do not affect the quality of the wine.
