Story

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.

Vineyard

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.

Vinification

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 prserve the acidity. The wine then aged for 18 months.

Tasting Notes

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

Food Pairing

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