Le Guide Bettane & Desseauve Vins de France 2013

The winery owns vineyards from the Grand Cru Osterberg in Ribeauvillé, but mostly fields in Bergheim and Hunawihr, especially Grand Cru Rosacker. Sugar levels are correctly adapted to the wine’s acidities and tend to melt away with time. .

PINOT GRIS GRAND CRU OSTERBERG 2009                                                  15/20

The label notes that this is a semi-sweet wine. For the moment, the sweetness is quite present.  The wine’s purity and minerality will permit ageing to perfection. (keep 2015 to 2024)

RIESLING GRAND CRU ROSACKER 2009                                                          15/20

The vintage makes the cru less dynamic than normal.  This Rosacker is rich and compact but the final is well balanced, no unnecessary sugar. (keep 2012 to 2019)


Great purity in the aromas, the rich, honey like sweetness is savorous, mouth-watering and delicate. (keep 2012 to 2023)

PINOT NOIR BARRIQUE 2009                                                                             14.5/20

Very spicy, due to it’s barrel ageing. This is a Pinot Noir that more structured than elegant but with fit perfectly with red meats and wild game.  (keep  2013 to 2017)

RIESLING VIEILLES VIGNES 2010                                                                    14.5/20

Pure and crisp. Vivacious with fine aromas of fresh fruit.  (keep 2012 to 2020)

SYLVANER VIEILLES VIGNES 2010                                                                 14/20

Ripe, pure, crisp, well made with a rather dense mouth feel. (keep 2012 to 2016)
