Vivid straw colour. Aromas of citrus fruits, yellow peony and bergamot on the enticing nose. Rich textured palate combining a lot of depth and power, a lemony acidity. The long finish features ripe stone fruits, peach, apricot, lime and a bright minerality. Impressive, this world class Riesling should be the star of your meal!

|Producer||Domaine Bott Geyl|
Jean-Christophe Bott is heir to the family tradition dating back to 1795, when his ancestor, Jean-Martin Geyl tended his vines and made his wine in Beblenheim. Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993 and he converted the vineyards to be organic in 2000 and then biodynamic in 2002.
In the vineyards he concentrates on low yields and in the cellars he oversees the vinification in the most natural and minimalist manner. The whole art is to bring together tradition and modernity, to perpetuate the vineyards for posterity and to protect its ecology.
Today, the Domaine consists of 80 plots of land spread out over 7 communes from Ribeauvillé to Kientzheim in the heart of the region named the “Pearls of Vineyards”.
J-C Bott has the good fortune to tend 15 hectares of vines including 6 Grands Crus (Furstentum, Mandelberg, Schlossberg, Schoenembourg, Sonnenglanz, Sporen) and 4 Lieux-dits (Burgreben, Grafenreben, Kronembourg, Schloesselreben). •
The grapes varieties consist of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc 45%, Riesling 30%, Gewurtztraminer 20%, and Muscat 5%.
It is his way of bringing together the history of the men and the women of the Bott family of Ribeauvillé and the Geyl family of Béblenheim, who trod the ground of the chai and of the vineyards over the generations.
