› The vintage

A very early harvest with excellent quality and small yields characterize the 2017 vintage.
Following a late spring freeze, the volumes were significantly reduced compared to the 2016 harvest. Excellent weather conditions throughout the summer encouraged full ripeness and the development of ideal acidities needed to create outstanding Alsace wines. Harvest of absolutely perfect grapes began the first week of Sept. In the cellar a few months later, the wines show fabulous, aromatic personalities already. The 2017 vintage will age well so we suggest to pick up extra bottles for aging and enjoying in a couple of years.

› Serving

Can be aged 5-8 years. Store on side between 10-15°C. Ideally served between 8-10°C.

› Tasting notes

Lightly fruity aromas precede an elegant, rich mouth. Mouthwatering and well balanced with a refreshing final.
Ideal as an aperitif but lovely with mushroom dishes, terrines, veal and chicken as well.

• Reviews

"A tropical whiff of ripe pineapple clings to the more customary pear notes on the nose of this wine. The palate is rounded with gentle sweetness but vivid with pear and lemon freshness. The finish is off dry and refreshing." [+]
