Riesling is all about finesse. It develops floral aromas: elderflowers, acacia and almond flowers. On the palate, it reveals refined flavours of blackcurrant buds and fresh mint. The wines are straightforward, pure with mouth-watering and crystalline minerality.
Gewurztraminer is very elegant. On the nose it has aromas of pear and pineapple. On the palate there are spicy flavours of cardamom, saffron and grilled almonds. Even at levels of heightened maturity, this grape variety maintains an exceptional freshness, backed by hints of menthol. The fresh and rising acidity of this wine is reminiscent of the genuine terroir. After a few years, the aromas of old rose from its early youth open up to the fragrance of resin and pine honey.
Pinot Gris from Frankstein is characterised by its gourmet balance. It sports the terroir with its finesse and mentholated aromas. Here, the typical smoky flavours of this variety give way to exceptionally clear and light floral notes.
Muscat reveals crispy fruitiness and pleasant floral aromas. It also elegantly unravels into typical mentholated notes of this Grand Cru.
Frankstein combines exuberance and fullness
The palate unravels with intensity. The acid structure is marked by its integrity. Linear and pure, it is counterbalanced by delicate and tender fullness. This sort of body provides a fondant feeling, prelude to a wine which lingers on expressive minerality.
Les agrumes, et notamment le pamplemousse, marquent les vins. Riesling finishes the palate with a slight noble mouth-watering bitter taste. As to the Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer, they are marked with hints of cereal and are very light.
