Dry, light and fruity

Edelzwicker AOC Alsace

This is the only Alsatian wine that is a blend of different grape varieties.
"Edel" means noble and "zwicker" means blend. Only quality grape varieties are used in the composition of this wine, which is of course an AOC Alsace wine. It is marketed in 1 litre bottles to obtain a lower cost price, and thus facilitate its daily consumption (among other things in pitchers in restaurants), as bulk sales are not permitted for Alsace wines

Tasting notes

  • Pale yellow with white gold highlights.
  • Expressive nose with a seductive harmony of floral, fruity and spicy notes.
  • On the palate, a frank attack followed by a nice presence in the mouth with a certain power and pleasant fruit, then a clean and fresh finish.

Food and wine pairing

Its fruitiness and freshness make it a perfect thirst-quencher.
An excellent companion for convivial meals (cassecroute, charcuterie, seafood and shellfish, sauerkraut, etc.). Also perfect for cooking or as an aperitif, associated with a crème de cassis (or other).
