This terroir, located at the edge of the Grand Cru Pfingstberg, was exploited as early as 1287 by the bishopric of Strasbourg, the largest owner of vines in Alsace under the Ancient Régime. It is therefore one of the first terroirs in Alsace to be named after its "place of origin".
The Riesling Lippelsberg, with its deep yellow colour and expenssive nose of fresh fruit, suggests a complex palate.
Indeed, the fat and dense palate reveals notes of citrus fruits, while having a slight salinity and minerality thanks to the clay-limestone-sandstone soil of the emblematic terroir of Orschwihr.
To be drunk chilled but not excessively, preferably refreshed in an ice bucket.
Ageing potential: 8 to 12 years.
