Beginning of week 2, and first Rieslings


The first days devoted to the Riesling grape variety as far as purchased grapes are concerned, certainly brings the best hopes for our 2010 vintage.The levels of maturity are beyond our expectations with most lots well over 12,5° potential and probably the biggest surprise is how sound these grapes are !  This is our latest ripening variety and it is commonly the best indicator of the overall quality of a vintage. The road seems to be paved for a very good 2010 in Alsace.

The weather also seems to be on our side, the low presure system that went by on Monday night brought just some insignificant rain.  The 10 day weather forecast remains idillic for the foreseable future...
