Description

Le Kottabe was imagined and created by Jean MEYER in 1986. The name, from the Greek "O Kottabos", was a game of skill, mixing wine and love. It was practiced in Greece during banquets in the 5th century BC. At the same time, the verticality of the consonants recalls the slender and assertive character of this grape variety.

At the heart of our history, our family tells its story, inhabited by passion and the desire to transmit. First from father to son, then from father to daughter. Today we are two sisters, Céline and Isabelle, following in our father's footsteps.

At the heart of our vines, the forces of Life flourish. Cultivated in organic and biodynamic cultivation and certified since 2004, our vineyard consists of 90 plots located in the plain and on the slopes of the Grands Crus Hengst (marl-limestone) and Brand (granite).

Tasting Profile

Palate
This dry Riesling is defined by its nervous and digestible structure. Thus, depending on the vintage, the wine will be delicate and precise on the nose, with scents of citrus fruits, grapefruit, or even blood orange for hot vintages or vegetal notes of aromatic herbs with iodized touches over a long year. fresh. The mouth carried by a tense and long acidity structure of the citrus fruit develops in a harmonious way. A great salinity, as well as a beautiful minerality, accompanies the material which opens out after a few minutes of aeration.
