RIESLING
VIEILLES VIGNES 2009

DOMAINE L. KIRMANN
EPFIG, ALSACE, FRANCE

100% RIESLING

This domaine is in Epfig, some fifty kilometers south of Strasbourg. The estate has been in the family for three generations and is now run by Olivier, who took over in 1996. The wine is from grapes selected from the oldest vines on the slope side of the vineyard. Perfect Riesling character from the simple philosophy of their winemaking being respect for the land and the vine, which gives a purity of taste. Very full-bodied, with excellent acidity and a long, zesty fruit and mineral finish.
