Classified Grand Cru with decree of 1975, this terroir has long been recognized as exceptional. It was mentioned for the first time in 1328 and to this day the reviews of the best specialists of Grands Crus d'Alsace unanimously confirm that this terroir is part of the elite Grand Cru of Alsace.

Wine description

The vineyard from which the Riesling Grand Cru Kirchberg de Ribeauville originates benefits from the south-south-west exposure, in combination with a marked slope, giving excellent insolation during ripening. The substrate consists of dolomitic marl and upstream of chalk marl. Clay soils, often very stony, on which the Riesling vineyards are located in the historic heart of the Grand Cru.

Climate

After a late burst of the bud due to the harsh winter, flowering took place in early June, i.e. before a normal year thanks to the rapid increase in temperatures in April and May. Generally it went well, as did the fruit. This two-week advance was maintained despite a rather dismal month in July. August, hot and very sunny, provided the ideal conditions for the ripening of the grapes. The crops that started early in our vineyards on 8 September 2009 were marked by ideal weather conditions. The rains were very low and the sun prevailed throughout the harvest. The almost torrid temperatures on some days combined with the relatively cool nights allowed to manage the harvest based on the data relating to their richness and maturity, but above all to their acidity. The superb general conditions of this vintage which combine earliness, maturity and perfect sanitary state allow you to glimpse wines of great resistance.

Tasting notes

Splendid golden yellow color with green reflections. The nose is expressive, fruity and fragrant (mango, papaya, nectarine, mandarin) bringing the exotic touch to this Grand Cru. In the mouth it is very pleasant and delicately structured, the mandarin has its effect. Dry but not hard, broad but not heavy, this riesling shows a great structure and volume. The finish is salty and long and the great strength of this wine is given by its power and balance brought about thanks to organic agriculture.

Aging capacity

Wine ready to be tasted and with excellent aging margins. 

Small tips

Taste it at a temperature of 8 ° -10 ° C. Ideal with fish, seafood and shellfish in sauce, white meats but also goat cheese. It can also accompany an entire meal.
