  • Yield: 63 hl/ha

  • Alcohol: 13 %/volume
  • Ageing potentiel: Until 2026

Tasting Notes:

With its fruity nose marked by notes of lemon, peaches and orange, this Riesling Côte de Rouffach is delicate and silky. Its freshness makes it a perfect match for oysters, grilled fish or a nice Alsatian Sauerkraut!

«Beutifully aromatic, featuring lots of mineral and honey on the nose and palate, along with flavors of poached quince, sliced almond, star fruit and fleur de sel. Statuesque and framed by firm acidity, this is light-to medium-bodied, with an intense, mineral-driven finish. Drink now through 2030. A.N» Wine Spectator Insider - October 22018
