Josmeyer "Le Kottabe" Riesling
Bottle size: 75cl
Viticulture: ORGANIC, BIODYNAMIC, NATURAL
A dry and elegant expression of Riesling. This is a pure and mineral Riesling with delicate spice, peach and herbaceous notes. Hints of grapefruit with a youthful feel, this wine has a precision which is characteristic of Josmeyer. Well balanced, with lovely airy quality. Perfect for seafood or goat's cheese.
Kottabe is from Domaine Josmeyer's "Artistic Series" and the name comes from the French word for an ancient Greek drinking game known as "Kottabos".
About the producer:
Cushioned between the rolling vineyards of Wintzenheim in Alsace, Domaine Josmeyer has been making wines for five generations dating back to 1854. The 25-hectare estate is spread across 90 plots, with parcels in the famous Grand Cru sites of Hengst and Brand - recognised for their exceptional wine production for centuries. Today sisters Céline and Isabelle run the Domaine and have been practicing biodynamics since 2000. The hand-picked grapes are crushed slowly and left to rest in century-old wooden casks where the wines ferment naturally at their own rhythm.
