Winemaking and ageing
The 'Sélection de Grains Nobles' is a label that is rare and prestigious for Alsatian wines. Prepared by the wine grower, it only applies to wines coming from exceptional harvests.    The grapes are brought to the cellar whole and overripe (a noble fungus called botrytis has developed causing the grape juice to concentrate and be very sweet.)  Fermentation is slow and done at 13°C.
Wine description
An old golden colour, with seducing candied fruits perfumes. Those fine aromas remind honey in mouth, and display a smooth, powerful, rich, persistent and well balanced wine. Already agreeable, it deserves to be aged a few years.
Wine and food pairing
Appetizers, special occasions, Foie gras, chicken tandoori, old cheeses, every kind of dessert or just to end dinner nicely.
