Some infos :
Referenced in the Guide des meilleurs vins de France RVF 2021: “Precise and salty, Appel’R Riesling lacks a bit of complexity but is quite appetizing. Rated 90”
Currently vintage 2018, the 2019 is coming in a few month.
Strange name for a wine ? this plot is located even higher than the granite terroir of Grand Cru Wineck Schlossberg but right next to it and well exposed. This plot overlooks the village and the Alsace plain. Some days we can even see the summits of the Swiss Alps. It is always a breath of fresh air to work there, bordered by hedges and woods. Acacias, chestnut trees, and birds helps us a little…
Story: also on 2 mica granite soil like the neighboring Grand Cru, this plot is very steep and hard to work. The wine took a long time to ferment and become totally dry. Vintage September 2017 and bottling March 2019 ! it is a straight, clean and dry riesling !
Our suggestions: everything that comes from the sea, from shells to seaweed and fish.
