Wine Enthusiast 



Pronounced mineral aroma, but the flavors show ripe peach and apple set against a rich texture. Dry with a floral after-taste. This is the ideal companion for seafood, such as sole and shellfish, as well as white meats!

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. Sediments of clay, chalk, sandstone schist and marls provide the acidity and the structure unique to the Alsace wines. The plots are well exposed to sunshine and benefit from the natural protection of the Vosges Mountains.


Traditional winemaking methods were used to respect the terroir and enhance freshness and fruit. Methods included: 100% hand harvesting, juice separation, and skin maceration. No malolactic fermentation was used in order to preserve the acidity. The wine then aged for 18 months.


Pronounced mineral aroma, but the flavors show ripe peach and apple set against a rich texture. Dry with a floral after-taste.


This is the ideal companion for seafood, such as sole and shellfish, as well as white meats!

Refreshing Acidity

I found this Riesling to be aromatic with concentrated lemon, lemon peel and white lily notes. The acidity was refreshing for me.

4.2 stars

Had never had this Oysterberg before, but it wasn't bad, would get again, liked the citrus notes and pairing with my dinner of shrimp, cod, and crab.
