Mêtis 2022 AOC Alsace


Tannic, with citrus zest and spices


Orange wine of maceration, blend of Gewurztraminer and Riesling.

This cuvée is produced according to a very old Alsatian vinification method, i.e. to carry out the alcoholic fermentation of the musts with the skins, the pips, the pulp of the grapes and the stems. The result is dry wines with more colour, chewiness, polyphenols, mineral elements, aromatic, saline, sapid and gastronomic wines.

Tasting notes

  • The majority grape, Gewurztraminer, has an old pink/purple skin, which gives a wine with a beautiful orange colour with pink reflections.
  • It is a very dry wine with aromas similar to a white wine, and a tannic structure similar to that of a red wine.
  • This first vintage develops aromas of citrus zest (tangerine, grapefruit), more spicy notes of liquorice and ginger with a slightly hoppy finish and a hint of bitterness brought out by the tannins.

Food and wine pairing

It is a wine to be appreciated with a meal, with terrines, spicy and exotic dishes, fish with a spicy sauce. As a general rule, it goes well with dishes with a spicy taste and which require a dry wine.
