Riesling Wiltinger Gottesfuss Alte R., Van Volxem - 2021

It is said that this Gottesfuss ("Foot of God") has been cultivated since the Romans. The 120-year-old vines are planted here on a terrifying slope, which pushes the limits of reasonableness and civilisation's stubbornness, to quote a famous phrase! Everything here is graceful, voluptuous and civilised, from the taste of the wine to its aromas of acacia and pink grapefruit. Miraculous.

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.
