Overview

Alsace A.C.

The Riesling is the noblest and finest grape variety of Alsace. Introduced in the 15th century from Rhineland, it is supposed to be in fact originating from the Orleans region. It is very different from its German homologue and from the many other Rieslings that are now appearing all over the world.

Our Riesling is planted essentially in the locality of Bollenberg and in the Grands Crus Saering and Kessler, and also in the young vineyards of the Grand Cru Kitterlé. In 2009, 47% of our Riesling Les Princes Abbés came from our Grands Crus.
