Tasting note Pale yellow colour with discreet green tints, shiny and limpid. Fresh, developing lemon aromas with discrete notes evoking white flowers. Frank and sophisticated attack on the palate. It expresses plenty of volume and little by little discretely unveils a beautiful palate of yellow fruit flavours. Derived from noble origins, this is a lively and thirst-quenching wine, thoroughly true to type.
Food matching From a gastronomic point of view, Riesling goes especially well with seafood and white meat: with the finest fish, either grilled or served with a sauce, shell or seafood, oysters, sauerkraut, rooster cooked in Riesling, frogs legs, eels stewed in wine sauce, Baekaoffa and cold cuts.
