Riesling Côte de Rouffach 2017

Riesling Côte de Rouffach

The vine: 

Sheltered by the highest peaks of the Vosges mountains, this terroir receives an exceptional amount of sunshine. The mainly limestone subsoil ensures good drainage. The exposure of the hillsides goes from east to south-west. In 2005 the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d’Origine) acknowledge the denomination « Côte de Rouffach » as a communal appellation.

  • Average age of vines: 40 years

The wine:

  • Vinification: slow fermentation (natural yeast) and maturation on fine lees
  • Harvest: By hand in 20-kg-boxes
  • Date of harvest: September 7th, 2017
  • Yield:43 hl/ha
  • Residual sugar: 0,4 gram / litre

Tasting Notes:

A floral, aromatic element of citrus creates a tender nose that recalls jasmine and pale lemon. Concentrated juiciness ripples acros the palate with citrus brightness and lingering flavors to savor. The finish is dry, lip-smacking and and long. Drink until 2030.» Anne Krebiehl
