"Strawgreen. Subdued aromas of licorice, spice, wet stone and earth. A fresh, smooth, rather gently styled riesling with moderate fruit intensity and structure. Offers a delicately fruity appeal, but the finish also displays typically sound riesling acidity. Includes 70% purchased grapes, mostly from the area of Riquewihr, especially sites with claylimestone soils."

"Aromatic, with a floral overtone to notes of mandarin orange, cream, spice and lemon zest. Wellknit, with a subtle, spiced finish. Harsh winter of 2011 with 26 days below zero. Early budding on April 7, May warm and dry and flowering 15 days ahead of time. Summer cool, damp and gloomy. Return to idyllic weather two weeks before harvest started on September 12, without any precipitation from beginning to end. Excellent maturity in a fair size crop with soft acidity. Wines already charming, easy to approach and early to drink soon after bottling. Originally from northern Italy, this is the emblematic grape of our region due to its slow maturation with cool nights giving its full varietal expression. Dry but intensely aromatic.Harsh winter of 2011 with 26 days below zero. Early budding on April 7, May warm and dry and flowering 15 days ahead of time. Summer cool, damp and gloomy.
