Tasting Notes: First you will enjoy smoky aromas with dried fruits and fresh apricots. Then, you will feel a generous palate. Overall it is a well-structured wine.

Cave de Ribeauvillé is one of the 5 wineries in France to obtain the certification : HEV in France in early 2020.
What is HEV?
High Environmental Value corresponds to the highest level for a environmental certification for farms.
The farm environmental certification is a voluntary approach. It aims to identify and promote environmentally-friendly practices applied by farmers.
HEV covers four key areas: First, biodiversity conservation then plant protection strategy, management of fertiliser use but also management of water.
First, Cave de Ribeauvillé covers a single vineyard of 235 hectares with 8 Grands Crus and numerous terroirs of great value.
Then a quality charter manages the entire estate. It guarantees manual harvesting, strict control of yields, work in the vineyard using reasoned control or organic farming.
All the grapes are brought to the press in whole bunches. The juice then flows by simple gravity into the vats. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment, the wines of the Cave de Ribeauvillé respect the purity of the grape variety and the identity of each terroir. The wines are frank, straight, fresh, fruity and express all the richness of the great Alsatian terroirs.
