Dry and elegant Riesling offers a highly refined bouquet with mineral notes (flint stone), floral and slightly fruity aromas (citrus), pine tree sap and cinnamon characteristics. This shiny and limpid wine is a pale yellow colour with light green tints. It boasts a very fresh nose, developing mineral-style aromas. Some citrus notes (lemon, orange, grapefruit) complete its aromatic expression. Refined, this is a lively and thirst-quenching wine, true to its grape variety of origin. The attack on the palate is frank and refined. It gently develops an impressive array of aromas (white flowers) with a well-structured base as well as plenty of volume and character. Perfectly well-balanced, this Riesling is very persistent on the finish with a pleasant mineral note mixed with white flowers.
From a gastronomic view, Riesling goes especially well with seafood and white meat: refined grilled fish or served with a sauce, shellfish and seafood, oysters, sauerkraut, cock stewed in Riesling, winegrowers pie, frog's legs, eel stew, Baekaoffa and cold cuts.
