Winemaker's Note

Founded in 1895, the Cave de Ribeauvillé is the oldest cooperative in France. The vineyards cover 265 hectares surrounding Ribeauvillé village. The human element is the foundation of the cooperative with a total of 110 members. AOC Crémant d’Alsace is the jewel in the crown of the sparkling wines produced in Alsace.


The vineyards extend for six miles around Ribeauville, on a famous geological fault line whose terrain is characterized by a patchwork of different soils and subsoils. This Gewurztraminer comes from the most famous Grand Cru: “Altenberg” located at the northern end of the Haut-Rhin department, perched on steep, south-facing hillsides between the villages of Bergheim and Saint-Hippolyte. Altenberg is by far the largest of these and also the most prestigious and is in fact, one of the most respected of all 51 Alsace Grand Crus.


Traditional winemaking methods were used to respect the terroir and enhance freshness and fruitiness. The methods used are 100% hand harvesting, juice separation, and skin maceration. No malolactic fermentation in order to preserve the acidity. Aging on lees. A unique Quality Charter with a 100% parcel traceability, severe yield control, and environmental protection.


Ripe, lush and well-defined, this wine has lychee and spice aroma flavors with a silky texture. It is well-balanced yet intense, with a long, lingering aftertaste of smooth honey.


Indian or Chinese cuisine, as well as Foie Gras and Munster cheese.

Nice

Lychee, mango, grass aromas and loads of tropical fruit on the palate, minerals and a bit of bitterness aftertaste. Delightful!

Loved the Lychee Fragrance!

Sweet, tastes like the pollen of a honey suckle and lychee!
