Riesling Les Eléments

Description

A really delicious Sancerre from a really tiny vineyard of just 1 hectare of vines on steep, south facing slopes, dotted with chalky pebbles.  Perfect balance of both zesty fruit and floral aromatics with concentrated falvours and a flinty minerality. 

Extra Notes

Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993. Under his watch, the vineyards were converted to organic status in 2000 and biodynamic in 2002. In the vines Jean-Christophe concentrates on low yields while in the cellar, wines are made using natural and minimalist techniques. Today the estate is made up of 15 hectares including 6 ha of Grands Crus and 4 ha of Lieux-dits. Huge focus is placed on expressing the unique, natural qualities of the terroir.

Region

Alsace

Located in northeast of France, Alsace is something of a hidden treasure, known for its very aromatic, floral and spicy white wines – and it's white wines that make up over 90% of the region's production.
