Riesling Réserve Lucien Albrecht

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Riesling is the King of Alsace and among the world’s greatest grapes. The juice is white and the wines are dry, racy with great definition of the fruit. Grown on mineral soils, it expresses floral and mineral character offering great aging potential. In Alsace, Riesling acquires distinctive concentration perfectly balanced by the acidity. It is one of the best wines to dine with.

WINE & FOOD PAIRINGS

Great with shellfish and sushi, this wine also pairs well with grilled fish, roasted poultry, snails, pasta with lemon pesto, traditional Alsace dishes (choucroute) or fresh goat cheese.

VINTAGE

Vintage with a relatively mild winter, hot and sunny summer and then a cool autumn to reach the maturity of the grapes intended for the production of still wines in mid-September.

TASTING NOTES

The delicate nose shows notes of citrus peels, lime and blossom. The palate matches the nose with a great freshness, tension and the final on lime.

Temperature of service: 8– 10° C°

Aging capacity: Enjoy it now or keep it up to 5 years.
