Editor note: Translate to English Tiefe, komplexe, etwas hefiger Nase nach kandierten und angetrockneten gelben Früchten mit herben Trockenkräuternoten und deutlicher Mineralik. Saftig, dicht und süßlich im Mund, ein wenig wachsige Frucht mit vegetabilen und erdigen Nuancen, sehr feine Säure, nachhaltig am Gaumen, gute Substanz und Tiefe, im Hintergrund Mineralik, zart bitterliche Töne im Hintergrund, aber auch auffällige Süße, sehr guter Abgang.

The oldest vineyards were on the banks of the Rhine, Neckar and Moselle. These rivers with their long valleys, as well as their tributaries, are still the classic wine-growing areas today. Viticulture was founded by the colonisation of Gaul by the Greeks and then brought to perfection by Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the Rhône valley to the...
