Riesling Grand Cru Kaefferkopf
Dry, mineral and elegant, its granite soil exposed south east gives it its fine crystalline acidity. A pale yellow color with golden highlights, a nose with notes of white flowers and minerality, the palate is lively, with ripe acidity and an imperial structure.
Seafood and rivers are likely to be magnified by Riesling Kaefferkopf, especially cooked fish and shellfish. But it will also serve as a showcase for regional gastronomy - that of Baeckaoffa, for example.
Pinot Gris Grand Cru Kaefferkopf
A confidential production (with only 9% of vines of the Earth), we are lucky to produce this beautiful Pinot Gris with aromas of white fruit, marmalade and candied fruit.
Coming from a 100% granitic plateau, magnificently exposed, it combines on the palate smoothness and freshness. It accompanies subtle and complex dishes such as duck breast "sweet salty", goose foie gras or chicken Bresse.
Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Kaefferkopf
A complex wine that envelops the palate to achieve a remarkable balance between creaminess, minerality and finesse. Its silky finish and its nice acidity gives it a good persistence. The notes of rose and exotic fruits charm the nose and confirm in the mouth. A wine which is appreciated in its youth, but which after a few years of guard allows him to express all his character.
Wine of pleasure and gastronomy, it goes perfectly with foie gras, cheeses (Bresse blue, Maroilles, Roquefort, Munster, ...), exotic and spicy cuisines, desserts little sweet. More daring chords do not frighten him, it is perfect for example with duck foie gras in spice bark or curry crayfish.
Kaefferkopf La Trilogie
A blend of elegance, refinement, pleasure and gastronomy. Sol only granite on the 3 grape varieties. They are separate plots but harvested the same day, pressed and vinified together for the same blend and harmony in the wine. Composition; Gewurztraminer 70%: strength, power, fruit Riesling 25%: freshness and middle note in the middle of the mouth and Pinot Gris 5%: this grape variety is poorly represented on the Grand Cru in general and the estate is lucky to have some. Small grains, very fragile and very fine, binding between the two grape varieties, which bring the aromatic refinement.
The Trilogy combines finesse, elegance and character; wine of pleasure as an aperitif, but also of gastronomy on refined dishes such as a carpaccio of St Jacques, a monkfish with spices or a quasi veal sweet and sour sauce.
