More about this wine

Chapoutier

Chapoutier

Chapoutier is one of the oldest families in the Rhone Valley. From 1988 until today, Michel Chapoutier has run this large business and wine business, with passion and determination, against standards and dogmas, true to the philosophy of terroir. Over the next twenty years, production increased from half a million to seven million bottles per year. The purchase of new plots has a great merit for this. Michel, the first of the winemakers at Hermitage, focuses on making wines, in small batches, from special countertops. Reduces yields, matures in new barrels, harvests only when the grapes have reached full maturity and switches entirely to a biodynamic model of agriculture. It sounds normal to you now, but in '89, in the Rhone Valley, it's unfamiliar and strange. Today, M. Chapoutier makes some of the most diverse and sophisticated wines in the northern Rhône, and his Chapoutier Sélections Parcellaires are among the most prized and rare wines along the Rhone.

Alsace

Alsace

Alsace is located in northeastern France, between the Vosges Mountains and the French border with Germany, marked by the Rhine. This is a long, thin region, 185 kilometers from north to south and only 40 kilometers from east to west. The key wine-growing regions here are located on the lower slopes of the Vosges, with eastern and southeastern exposure. Alsace specializes in white varieties such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. These varieties, naturally distributed in neighboring Germany, in contrast, here are produced in a much drier style. The best presented are the dry and mineral Riesling, the spicy and strong Gewürztraminer, which go well with the local cuisine. Other interesting and noteworthy are the light and fresh Sylvaner, as well as Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.

Riesling

Riesling

Riesling is an aromatic white grape variety that produces wine in the entire range - from botrytized sweet (one of the best in the world) to dry and semi-dry varieties, with captivating aromas of citrus and stone fruits, as well as the typical petroleum aroma, which in certain terroir appearances can dominate sensitively. Riesling's homeland can be said to be the valleys of the Rhine and Moselle rivers in Germany - the variety likes cooler weather. Naturally, here are the main wine regions of the country (Moselle, Rheinhessen, Rheingau, Pfalz). The vineyards are located on the steep hills, making mechanisation difficult, so here the viticultural activities are mainly manual. The wines from these regions are fresh and with a pronounced acidity. However, Riesling in Germany is by no means the main variety, in fact another is the wine region in which this variety is most common - and this is Alsace in France (or Elsaß in German). Unlike the German Riesling, the French Riesling is more saturated and lush due to the specifics of the microclimate there - the Vosges Mountains provide protection from northern winds and cold, and the sun is more generous in this southern region. Outside of these countries, perhaps Austria also presents itself with an interesting reading of this often called king of white varieties, and some countries of the New World successful experiment with it as well.
