Get to know: Domaine Bott-Geyl, Riesling Les Elements
Fabulous off-dry Alsace Riesling with delicious and delicate aromas of apple, peach, and citrus on the nose. On the palate lime, creamy honey, and earthy & vanilla notes deliver a juicy mouthful and a bright and satisfying finish.
Try this with salmon with lime and chilli.
Jean-Christophe Bott is heir to the family tradition dating back to 1795, when his ancestor, Jean-Martin Geyl tended his vines and made his wine. Jean-Christophe Bott has been responsible for Domaine Bott-Geyl since 1993 and he converted the vineyards to be organic in 2000 and then biodynamic in 2002
In the vineyards he concentrates on low yields and in the cellars he oversees the vinification in the most natural and minimalist manner. The whole art is to bring together tradition and modernity, to perpetuate the vignoble for posterity and to protect its ecology.
