This organic Riesling, from the most typical grape in Alsace, is made from various old vines of Domaine Vincent Stoeffler. Intense notes of citrus and orange are nicely balanced with acidity, bringing a fresh tone into the wine. We particularly like the hint of honey on the finish. A great entry-level Riesling we were grateful to discover and that we definitely recommend!

90/100 "Pure notes of russet pear rise from the glass with their wonderful combination of juicy ripeness and moreish freshness. The palate does these aromas justice and follows with fruit-driven full freshness of pear and lemon. The body is slender and zippy, the finish is clean and dry." (previous vintage)
85/100 "The Riesling Tradition is a medium-bodied, clear, round and fruity character with a nice, fresh finish. Drink over the next 2+ years." (previous vintage)
Pinot Blanc is the white version of Pinot Noir that can be found mainly in Alsace, Germany and Italy. Not as prestigious as other Alsace grapes, it produces a lovely dry wine with an obvious roundness due to its low acidity. Light-bodied and dominated by flavours of exotic fruit and white peach, it also exhibits pronounced aromas of flowers on the nose...
We have been instantly charmed by this Pinot Noir coming from a specific plot (or "lieu-dit") in Ribeauvillé, developing complex aromas of black cherry and blackberry, with a welcome hint of sweet spices. Beautiful finish with silky tannins and a great minerality, very typical of this terroir. A great example of what Alsace can offer when it comes to red...
"An excellent and very delicate sparkling wine from Alsace that underlines the talents of Vincent Stoeffler" - Robert Parker. Made from a blend of different white grapes - Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois - it is a round, creamy and fruity Crémant delivering notes of peach and apricot. This is a great alternative to Champagne and our top pick for...
Gewurtztraminer is a famous local grape producing very fruity, slightly sweet and spicy white wines with low acidity - they are definitely unusual wines! This one has an explosive nose of ripe mango, yellow peach and papaya with delicate notes of rose and chilli. It is slightly sweet and has a super-long finish. Very special, very Gewurtztraminer!
Alsace Grand Cru is a wine made with grapes coming from a designated plot that has been classified as a Grand Cru - the highest rank in the Alsace classification. This dry Riesling is a medium to full-bodied white, showing complex and multiple aromas - ripe fruit, honey, stone and spices... all this balanced by a beautiful minerality and a long, yummy...
"Vendanges Tardives" means the wine was made from grapes harvested later than usual, when the "noble rot" or Botrytis Cinerea starts to affect the grapes, making them loose almost all their water content. Thanks to its complex aromas and good acidity, Riesling is on of the most amazing grapes for late harvest wines - and you'll certainly realise it with...
