Winemaker's Notes

"Exuberant aromas of peach, orange, lime, smoke and minerals. Dense, thick and concentrated, with complex flavors of soft citrus fruits, peach and wet stone. Tactile and long on the back."

The Domaine's Riesling wines have a fine and delicate fruitiness, they are racy, nervy, dry but at the same time they are mature and long on the palate. Riesling is such a prestigious grape variety that it is considered as the king of Alsace wines. It holds a special place in our vineyards and in our hearts. The Schlossberg soil magnifies its expression, the different plots give birth to different cuvées. They harmonize marvellously with fish (cooked or raw), shellfish and seafood, and choucroute (a typical Alsacian dish made of cabbage and sausage). Of course, they go well with coq au vin as with some white meat dishes, not forgetting goat cheese.

Origins: the high part of the "grand cru" Schlossberg's hill. In a tense and very pure style, the Riesling Schlossberg tastes perfect with fish on the grill, oysters and other kinds of seafood, as well as with the traditional alsacian choucroute.
