Remarks

:

Grape variety: Riesling

Soil: These wines are planted on hills, where the south-east exposition provides constantly sun.

The soil is entirely covered by granite, which provides heat to the grapes during the night. The vines are in the best conditions all along the year.

Winemaking method: Thanks to warm sunshine and low rainfall, the grapes, affected by noble rot, have been picked very late in November.

The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand, and the whole berries are pressed. Traditional fermentation through temperature control process, and ageing in vats.

Color; golden yellow, with a perfect brightness.

In the nose: fresh and mineral, with anise and dried flowers notes.

In the mouth: graceful wine, with a clean and racey entry. This Riesling is round and mellow, yet at the same time fresh, harmonious and refined. Its long length reveals its exotic aromas.

Riesling is less well known as late harvest, but its elegance will seduce you! It will be perfect for an aperitif, with Foie Gras, with a dessert, or just for itself!
