Domaine Léon Boesch Les Grandes Lignes Riesling

22.50

The Boesch domaine is located within the Vallèe Noble, in the “Ballons des Vosges” natural park. A magical place, surrounded by splendid vineyards at the foot of the two highest mountains of the Vosges range. The Boesch family has lived there and worked the land since 1640. 25 year old biodynamic vines planted in a limestone and sandstone-clay soil on an east facing hillside give this delicious wine. This wine is the subject of evident care: ploughing, natural treatments, and the vines are fertilized with compost produced on the estate. The harvest, the highlight of the year, is carried out exclusively by hand, and fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts in oak casks.  The nose is characterized by rhubarb, apricot, anise and gingerbread. On the palate it is very clean. Definitely a great Riesling.
