Overview

Riesling is a white wine produced in the Alsatian wineyard. It is the most elegant of alsatian wines. It is well balanced, dry, clear-cut and charming. This aromatic white wine is a noble grape variety just like Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Muscat. Riesling is known to be the finest Alsatian wine. He covers around 25% of the Alsatian vineyard. Its color is a mix of yellow and green. Older Rieslings have powerful mineral aromas when younger Rieslings are more floral. It goes along very well with fishes, seafood, poultries, cold meat and also on famous Alsatian dishes like Choucroute and smoked ham.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma & Palate

The Riesling is the King of Alsace wines. Dry and racy, with various aromas from fruit notes (citrus fruits) to mineral aromas (flinty). Vigorous at the begining, it shows a well-structured and a long lasting finale. Enjoy this wine young within 5 years to take advantage of its freshness and aromas.

Food matching

This Riesling goes marvelously well with fish, shellfish, white meats and our famous sauerkraut from Alsace.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The vineyards of Ribeauvillé have been there since the beginning of time. The Lords of Ribeaupierre and the Benedictine monks were the first to utilise the abundance of natural resources: with its south facing slopes and varying top soils.

Despite a history of civil unrest in this area of France from 1895, the Cave de Ribeauvillé has managed to preserve its spirit of solidarity and efficiency in winemaking. From generation to generation, vintage to vintage, grape growers have called for independence in making their own wine without interference.

The Cave de Ribeauvillé covers a single vineyard of 265 hectares including 8 Grands Crus and other plots of notable quality. The total surface area is managed by a quality chart, which guarantees strict control of yields, sustainable growth, organic practices, and of course……a manual harvest. 

Hand harvesting allows a strict selection process of the best grapes that are then transported in small wagons to the press, without any pumping or additional handling. The juices flow into the vats below by employing gravity. This method, unique in Alsace, enables all of the aromatic virtues of each varietal to be preserved. The wines express all the richness and diversity of the Alsatian soils. They are pure and honest wines, with nice freshness and aromatic intensity.

The selection that we have chosen are all 100% organic!
