From vines over 35 years old; this stunning Alsace Riesling is rich and concentrated whilst remaining dry and racey. It's highly aromatic, with notes of citrus, grapefruit and hints of fennel and almonds. The taste is quite full, fruity and long, with added complexity from the old vines and delightful energy from the great acidity.

Selected parcels of Riesling vines, averaging over 35 years of age, grow on limestone, granite and gravel soils. Traditional, sustainable winemaking with fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 19°C. Michel prefers to make a dry style Riesling which allows the true expression of this variety, which was first recorded in Alsace in 1477.

This pairs with many foods, particularly those with Thai or Chinese spices. Great with sushi and Maki. Also works well with goose or duck dishes, and richly flavoured risottos.
