This excellent 7-hectare estate is situated in the village of Husseren and is run by Andre's son Christophe, who trained in Burgundy and Australia and who took over from his father in 1990. Winemaking has run in the family for over 200 years and Christophe is the 9th generation winemaker to take over the reins of the family estate. The vines are situated on the famed plateau of Eguisheim and include 2 hectares of grands crus vineyards at Eichberg and Pfersigberg. This off-dry, aromatic Riesling is from 30 year old vines and its restrained minerality pairs particularly well with grilled fish.
A pale yellow-green in colour. An attractive nose of honeysuckle, peach and apricot. On the palate, off-dry with notes of green orchard fruits and sweet basil. Great acidity with a pleasantly tart aspect. The finish is clean and crisp. Drink with crab terrine with asparagus and chervil butter sauce, rainbow trout galantine with a French bean salad or a fruity Moroccan chicken tagine.
