RIELSING

One of the most recognisable grape varieties

RIELSING

Also called Rhine Riesling, Weisser Riesling.

As a late maturing and productive white grape variety, it is one of the northernmost grape varieties that thrives in cool climates, and is mainly found in Central Europe. First present in Germany as early as the 15th century, it can be found today in some temperate vineyards of the New World. In France, it is in Alsace that it is most successful. It is the Alsatian wine par excellence. In Alsace it is produced in the appellations: Sélection Grains Nobles and Vendanges tardives for sweet white wines, and under the AOC Alsace Grand Cru or Alsace Riesling for dry white wines. It thus offers dry and sweet white wines characterized by a powerful acidity (freshness) and a remarkable minerality. They are subtle, racy, delicately scented and beautifully balanced wines that can age well.

SHALL WE TASTE?
In the galss

vin blanc sec à base de Gewurztraminer

dry white

Very fine with frank, intense and distinguished aromas. Pale in colour with green reflections, the aromatic palette is tonic and fresh on the nose, evoking citrus fruit (lemon), minerality (flint, petrol), white flowers (lime blossom, honeysuckle) or fruit (green apple, pear, peach, apricot, mirabelle plum, exotic fruits). On the palate, refreshing and sharp acidity that is full-bodied with the wine in a subtle and balanced structure. It evolves as it ages with notes of honey, dried fruit, sweet spices.

SWEET WINE

One of the peculiarities of Riesling is its ability to ripen slowly without losing its natural acidity. Grapes affected by noble rot (botritys cinerea) are picked late in the harvest, sometimes caught by the cold (ice wine) and offer an astonishing bouquet of overripe fruit (candied citrus fruit, apricot, white fruit, honey, exotic fruit) under a golden colour. Aromas nuanced by mineral or spicy notes. On the palate, the natural acidity balances the sweetness. Good ageing potential.

MORE INFORMATION

Riesling has established the reputation of the wines of the Rhine, Moselle and Alsace. In Germany, it became by far the first white grape variety cultivated. It is in regions with harsh winters that it expresses itself best and offers its wines a surprising aromatic palette. Resistant to difficult conditions, it reveals the terroir like no other.

Tasty and delicately perfumed with its fruity notes, this wine goes well with the most refined dishes.

The best of Alsace can be found among the vintages proposed by Marcel Deiss, Domaine Trimbach, Domaine Eblin-Fuchs, Domaine Valentin Zusslin, or Domaine Schlumberger; In Germany by the domains Markus Molitor, Weingut Reichsgraf von Kesselstat or the no less famous Domaine Egon Muller.
