$85.00

Region: Alsace

Grapes: Riesling, Pinot Gris

Nerd Notes:
This is a micro vineyard (just 0.1 ha) high in the hills, on the pure blue slate of Villé. The Reisling and Pinot Gris vines are co-planted as was previously traditional in Alsace.

Co-harvested, pressed and co-fermented until dry, then aged in very large fourdres for 18 months. Very little of this wine is made making it very rare.

The Wine:
Blue slate minerality rips down the palate. Very fresh and flinty with hints of stone fruit and floral notes. Complex, powerful and delicious.
