Getting to know our Riesling Rayon de Lune

Dry, distinguished and delicately fruity, Riesling is king of Alsace's indigenous grape varieties. Widely acknowledged as one of the world's finest white grape varieties, Riesling is synonymous with gastronomic excellence.

Cuvée "Rayon de Lune" is inspired by the history of Bennwihr and its villagers, nicknamed the "moon chasers" (Mondfanger) since medieval times on account of their insatiable thirst for freedom. The winemakers of BESTHEIM drew inspiration from the Moon in crafting this wine, presented in exclusive blue bottles in homage to the colour of the night sky in the Moonlight.

Tasting Notes:

A magnificent white gold colour, crystal-clear and bathed in light. Fresh nose with prominent grapefruit notes. The Riesling's crisp, mineral character gradually comes to the fore, capturing the essence of the clay-limestone terroir. On the palate this is a classic Riesling, dry and distinguished. Vibrant citrus notes bring a sense of gastronomic vivacity to this charming wine.

Food-wine pairings:

A perfect partner for fish and shellfish

And what if... Succumb to the temptation of an unexpected encounter...
