This parcel (Clos) has historically been planted with three grape varieties: Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer.
‘Le Clos du Zahnacker’ is owned by the Cave de Ribeauvillé since 1965.
Same parcel, same name, same soil : here, time has stopped. It is located in the heart of the Grand Cru Osterberg and faces south-east on Triassic period grounds, alternating limestone and marl. This particular parcel is 124 acres and enjoys a favorable sunshine all year round.
A wine of which a recent vertical tasting, dating back to the 1955 vintage, showed the incredible potential of ageing !
Gastronomically speaking, this wine is the ideal companion for an aperitif. It is also appreciated on a foie gras, fish and crustaceans in sauce, stuffed poultries, and full-bodied cheeses.
