  1. Domaine Ansen Gewürztraminer (Ostenberg-Ritzmann Single Vineyard)
  2. Domaine Ansen Riesling (Lerchensand Single Vineyard)

    Lerchensand is a southward hillside vineyard. This narrow and low hill is covered with small vine fields. High amounts of clay contribute to the dark colour of the ground and low fertility. The underground belongs to the Keuper marl of the Trias period. 210 millions years ago, an ancient sea evaporated, leaving salt and clay. The combination of high amounts of magnesium, the storage of warmth and the incredibly long vegetation period is what makes it possible in the first place to produce such outstanding whites with crisp acidity.

  3. Champagne Girardin Cuvee Rubato (Doux)

    A blend of 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier, 10% Pinot Noir. Dosage: 120 g/L

    Ageing: more than 5 years. Harvest years: mainly 2006.

    Rubato, which means «hidden» or «secret» in Italian, signifies an instruction to accelarate certain notes and slow down others. These variations in speed of execution are applied according to the will and inspiration of the conductor or musician. The melody is thus momentarily held back and this effect, when well handled, can give a specific tonality to the rendering. The cuvée Rubato is analogous to this notion as it signifies the coming together of a wine, as a tune with its specific rhythm, and the winemaker playing the part of a musician-interpreter. Very fine bubbles almost stand still in the glass. The wine is both sweet and vibrant, showing notes of quince and green plum. This Champagne has two sides to it: its rythm is provided by the crispness of the fruit flavours and the sweetness by the winemaker. Cuvée Rubato opens up a whole new field in terms of wine & food pairing: as an aperitif with a slice of lemon, with pan-fried foie gras, or with a fruit- based dessert like apple pie. One can use its altering rythms to ring the changes! The double bass, which symbolises this cuvée Rubato, was the accompanying instrument at the time of Bach or Handel for singers who practised rubato.

  4. Champagne Vincent Couche Bulles de Miel (Demi Sec)

    A blend of 72 % Pinot Noir and 28 % Chardonnay. Dosage of 34g/L

    Wine made from grapes under conversion to organic agriculture. This surprising champagne changes one’s habits. Bulles de Miel, a semi-dry wine unlike the others, has a dosage of 34g of sugar, yet shows itself to be soft, refined, and balanced by refreshing citrus fruit.

    “The nose has a great softness with accents of honey. The mouth is rich and fleshy, mellow. The sensation of softness is well-balanced by notable fruit and a beautiful freshness. A semi-dry wine remarkable for its harmony; enjoy with foie gras or dessert.” Gilbert et Gaillard. 90/100

  5. BattenfeldSpanier - Kirchenstück Riesling Auslese

    Kirchenstuck Riesling Auslese features candied orange rind steeped in quince jelly and tinged with some of the black pepper, coriander and marjoram. Pungently aromatic, its seductively buoyant and creamy yet juicy palate proves ideally transparent to metaphorically cooling herbal nuances, while piquancy of fruit pit and walnut oil add to the savor of a prodigiously long finish without engendering outright bitterness.

  7. Domaine Ansen Pinot Gris (Elmen Single Vineyard) 2013

    Elmen lies at the top and both sides of a low hill, which belongs to the trough of Balbronn. The underground belongs to the Keuper marl of the Trias period. 210 millions years ago an ancient sea evaporated, leaving salt and clay. High amounts of clay contribute to the dark colour of the ground and low fertility. The combination of low fertility and a hill top is what makes it possible to produce a complex pinot gris with unique earthy and pineapple aromas. The clayey underground will contribute to the wine crisp acidity and ageing potential of 10 years.

  8. L'Arco Recioto

    After the harvest, the best clusters of corvina, rondinella and molinara are dried on plateaux about 120 days. Father of the great wines of Valpolicella, of intense ruby red colour, with hints of cherry jam and a sweet taste, mellow and extraordinary equilibrated.

    Recioto Classico della Valpolicella L’Arco combines very well with dried cakes and seasoned cheeses.

  9. BattenfeldSpanier - Frauenberg Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese

    Spanier’s 2011 Florsheimer Frauenberg Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese is loaded with quince and yellow plum preserves at once both honeyed and juicily fresh. Accents of peppermint, candied lemon rind, crystallized ginger and glazed pineapple lend tart invigoration as well as piquant glow to this pervasively and persistently juicy libation, while salted caramel with an emphasis on the salt stimulates the salivary glands.
