Gastronomy

This Riesling is obviously the king of fish and shellfish. It emphasizes the flavours with iodine from the sea and is wonderful with white meats and poultry or with goats, sheep cheese.

History

Riesling is the grape of choice from the Rhine region and the earliest known in Alsace. It has been cultivated since the 15th century. It is considered to be one of the most prestigious white grapes in the world!

Its small green grapes ripen slowly in the sun and they are late maturing. It requires a soil exposure particularly favourable with the sun. The Riesling grape is probably the one that best expresses the identity of its geologic soil.
