Lieu dit Breitenberg
The locality (lieu-dit) called Breitenberg (meaning "wide hill" in Alsatian) is a terroir with a very beautiful exposure like the Grand Cru Zinnkoepflé. Its soil is silty sandy sandstone. We raise these vines like a grand cru, with a shorter pruning and an optimal advanced ripening. In this way we are happy to make high quality wines which are concentrated and fruity.
Riesling Lieu- dit Breitenberg
The grapes come from a small plot, the pruning of the vines is short thus giving small yields. As the manual harvesting takes place later than for the Riesling Prestige, it has more concentrated aromas with hints of peppery lemon. It matches ideally with fishes in sauce, cream scallops, or simply at the apéritif in summer. A beautiful vintage to keep.
