Not at all sweet, but not fully fermented either, this is my Riesling of the moment to drool over says Tom Stevenson. " It's absolute perfection when partnered with a tatin of caramised apples served with creme fraîche " - DECANTER août 2004 " Top 100 Wines to try before you die "
Rich dishes (foie gras, sardines tagine with lemon confit), goat tommes (Ossau Irati) and desserts based on apples (tart Tatin), lemon or rhubarb.
