Riesling is the most widely planted and elegant grape of Alsace. It covers one fifth of the vineyards. Even though it has a proven presence since the XVth Centaury in the Rhéane Valley its exact origins remain unknown. The different compositions of the terroirs are strongly reflected in the grape; each soil composition gives rise to a different complex aromatic range. The king of Alsatian wines it reveals deliciously fruity, floral and mineral aromas.
It can be dry, planted in Grand Cru AOP, Vendage Tardive type or come from one of the Sélection de Grains Nobles. Riesling develops very well when the grapes are harvested when over ripe.

Riesling Bollenberg 2016
After observing its clear, clear yellow colour, you can enjoy its very fruity nose with aromas of lemon, pine resin and pineapple. In the mouth the attack is frank and lively, the 12 g/l of residual sugar seems almost non-existent but contributes to the overwhelming sensation of the wine. The mouthfeel is crunchy with lemon and resinous flavours and salinity is very present. The balance is very well balanced and the length on the palate is impressive.
Riesling Enchenberg 2014
This wine has a brilliant yellow colour.
The nose is lemony with a hint of orange zest, a beautiful full-bodied and very present minerality develops over time.
In the mouth, the attack is lively and frank, the acidity is very present and reveals a lemony side as well as a very fine and very pleasant minerality.
It is good to know that as the wine ages, it will gradually lose its lemony character and become more mineral.
Riesling Grand Cru Kessler 2004
After admiring its brilliant golden yellow colour, you will appreciate its very mineral, slightly smoky nose, with lemon and buttery notes.
Its mouth, dry and lively in attack, continues with a series of aromas reminiscent of resin, flint but also has a hint of lemon. The finish ends with very mineral aromas, slightly toasted. The length in the mouth is impressive.
Riesling Grand Cru Kitterlé 2008
Golden yellow to the eye, this wine will surprise you with a nose of rare power, tactfully blending a very lemony side with a touch of petrol aromas. Its massive, voluminous mouth, supported by a fine acidity, will reveal light pineapple notes that embellish a very pronounced flint side, while the finish will start again on a very refined citrus fruit side.
Dry wine on the palate (minerality) with a nice length.
Riesling Grand Cru Pfingstberg 2005
After admiring its brilliant golden yellow, take a moment to smell its lemony, slightly minty nose, which gradually gives way to aromas of orange and spices.
Its mouth starts gently on citrus aromas, the sugar is slightly noticeable but very quickly the typical acidity of Pfingstberg takes over with its mineral aromas and a very present salinity which make this wine so special and so rare.
Pfingstberg is traditionally enjoyed after at least 10 years of ageing and this one, even with its 19 g of residual sugars, is no exception.
Riesling Grand Cru Pfingstberg 2014
This wine has a beautiful deep yellow colour with a mineral and woody nose with a touch of citrus fruits and white flowers.
In the mouth, the attack is lively and frank with a strong lemony side that predominates, then appears a mineral and salty side, almost tannic, characteristic of young Pfingstberg.
It should be noted that the Pfingstbergs, like the Enchenbergs, are very lemony in their youth but make a tight turn towards minerality after 6 to 10 years of ageing. As a result, the ageing time will depend on how you enjoy the wine. Decanting in the first few years is strongly recommended.
Riesling Grand Cru Rangen 2003
It took almost 15 years for this wine to finally open!
On the nose we find a hint of melissa and mint with a touch of citron.
In the mouth, if a citrus side takes precedence over the attack, the salinity and minerality return very quickly to take over with a very present rock side. The length on the palate is exceptional, this wine is now over 15 years old but there is still incredible potential for maturation.
Riesling Grand Cru Rangen 2009
This wine has a beautiful golden color, nose very mineral and slightly smoky aromas stand out at first followed by notes of lemon / lime. The attack on the palate is quite supple and fruity with aromas of citrus fruit but the minerality appears quickly again with a side smoked / grilled. The mouth is extremely long and finishes on a saline / graphite side
Riesling Grand Cru Rangen Vendanges Tardives 2001
Under its bright yellow color hides a delicious nose of ripe white fruit, there are peach, pear, a hint of apricot and I would say a little strawberry! In the mouth, a sweet but airy attack continues by the arrival of a rich acidity of citrus fruits, quince, peach and some buttered notes that soften the whole.
