2005 Klevner Vielles Vignes, Lucas & André Rieffel

Mittelbergheim hosts many young and serious, ecologically oriented producers that develop the potential of the vineyards with great determination. One of these is Lucas Rieffel who enjoys a strong reputation among peers all over Alsace.

2005 Klevner Vielles Vignes is made from grapes of 80 year old vines of Auxerrois. The aroma is powerful and spicy with hard-knit fruit. The taste is quite full and dry, the fruitiness is compact, and the long aftertaste is a bit herbal and square. A great success! Price: € 6.20.
