Vine: Riesling x Madeleine Royale

 

The Riesling-Sylvaner is traditionally described as the result of a crossing between the Riesling Blanc and the Sylvaner Vert. The genetic techniques allow us to assert today, however, that in reality it is a crossing of Riesling with Chasselas. This vine resists well to diseases and parasites during flowering, but is sensitive to mildew. The bunches are medium size with grapes that are smaller than those of the Chasselas. The wine from this vine is coarse, aromatic, with a rich flavour, with a musked taste and a relatively low acidity. It may therefore be consumed young and fresh, but it also ages well.
