Wines from Grand Cru Osterberg in Ribeauvillé, planted in Riesling, reveal powerful varietal flavors
and aromas. When young these Alsace wines are characterized by a rich tartaric acidity covered
with a hint of sweetness. They acquire a delicious minerality with age and are cherished by wine
aficionados. Stony clay, calcareous marl soil. The nose is dominated by citrus fruits, the mouth is
pure and well structured, nearly dry, hint of grapefruit, long finish. Agreably fresh. Food pairing :
Excellent with scallops, lobster and fine fish recipes.

Pineapple, lime, passionfruit on the nose. Exotic but not tropical. A little rounder than the two other Grand Crus. More fruit weight coats the acidity. After a little time in the glass the palate fines down and the minerality starts to show through. Salty lime nuances come to the fore. Quite a contrast in style, just as in Burgundy the different soil types lending their influence to the wine (here it is marl and sandstone with a little clay). Who said terroir only applies to Burgundy?
