Tasting Notes

Alsace Riesling shows an intense expression of white flowers followed by notes of citrus and stones. Straight, elegant, balanced with notes of citrus, a great acidity and a lovely minerality in the finish.

France

Alsace

Alsace is a wine region with strong Germanic influences located in north-east of France. For instance, Alsace is the only French wine region to predominately grow grapes commonly associated with German wines - Riesling and Gewurztraminer. A Grand Cru classification system exists in Alsace.

Domaine Paul Ginglinger

The soils and terroirs of Alsace are a winemaker’s dream as there is a different soil composition in every single plots of every vineyard. Alsace is a complex mosaic with different soils, subsoils, and bedrocks, being the result of its location on a geological fault. Alsace vineyards sits in a hole between the Vosges and the Black Forest. If we can generalize, the subsoil in Alsace can be marly, slightly granitic, volcanic, sandy, calcareous, or even very stony clay.
