Sheltered by some of the highest Vosges mountains, the Clos Rouffach, with its chalk soil, is great for Riesling. This wood-aged wine, from Riesling master René Muré, is big, ripe and powerful. It's a great wine, very modern and polished, with a nice mineral character. Imported by Robert Kacher Imports.
