A pure and complex Riesling Grand Cru with a phenomenally expressive aroma profile. More info

The Brand Grand Cru is produced from a granite terroir with areas of integrated limestone – a factor which gives the wine its wonderful minerality – and which is sheltered from the wind and benefits from ideal sun exposure. Grapes are harvested by hand and undergo pneumatic pressing, fermentating for 1-4 months before maturation in 100 year-old oak barrels or stainless steel vats. This is a tremendously complex wine; well-defined mineral notes of white fruit and citrus lead into a lingering saline finish.

Riesling Grand Cru Brand Josmeyer (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Baeckeoffe, Choucroute de la mer, Sushis et sashimis.
