Brilliant Gold medal Riesling from the beautiful, sun blessed region of Alsace. Often forgotten, the appellation makes some of France’s finest whites, and Riesling is its most noble variety – just taste this pristine, lime and mineral fresh white.

Ask a sommelier or wine critic their favourite white grape and chances are it’ll be Riesling. It’s renowned in Germany, Austria and the New World, but many forget that this variety produces some of its finest wines in Alsace, eastern France. Steep slopes, abundant sunshine (the sunniest spot in all France) and the Vosges mountains all lend the region’s wines a pristine freshness (whatever the sweetness – and they do vary from lusciously honeyed to bone dry), amazing intensity and purity of fruit. This is an elegant white from the Gisselbrecht family’s 350 year old cellar, today run by brothers Philippe and Claude. With a perfect balance of apple, floral notes and lime zip, this white is ideal with fish pie, spicy dishes and crab soufflé.
