The nose is still rather discreet, very pure, dominated by notes of vanilla and dried flowers.In the mouth, the attack is supple and fleshy. The acidity is gradually revealed with a lively touch accompanied by a fine bitterness. A persistent finish with distinct salinity emphasised by the mineral component of this wine.

Harvested by hand with strict sorting. Gentle, gradual pressing which is implemented rapidly. The wine passes into the vat by gravity and is immediately chilled and then the racking must is moved. Fermentation maintained at between 18 and 20° C in stainless steel vats. The wine is then stored on fine lees for ageing over a few months before being bottled in the traditional "flute d'Alsace".
