Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

Riesling Saar, Van Volxem - 2023

Produced by a great (literally and figuratively!) Saar winemaker, this wine displays the straightforward, uncompromising character of the grape variety and the dizzying local schist terroirs. Very pretty notes of dried fruit, honey and flowers on the nose, with a pronounced mineral undertone. The palate is driven by a noble bitterness and tracks wonderfully, calling for fine food. It will age very well!

Rediscovered and developed by monks in the 11th century, it was cultivated from the 16th century onwards by the Jesuit Order, then transformed into a wine-growing monastery in 1743. During the French Revolution, the ecclesiastical lands were secularised. During the French Revolution, the ecclesiastical lands were secularised and the Brussels brewer, Gustav Van Volxem, became the owner. This visionary was quick to recognise the potential of the vineyard, which was very well situated on the Saar, and succeeded in making it one of the most renowned in the Prussian Empire. The rise of the region's wines triggered the golden age of the winery, whose "nectars" appeared on many prestigious wine lists around the world.After four generations of the Van Volxem family, the estate was bought by Roman Niewodniczanski in 2000.
