R 2021 from Justine & Patrick Bouju
The R stands for Riesling and is another Negocé wine from Justine & Patrick Bouju. The Riesling grapes come from Alsace and are quickly pressed after a short maceration period, then aged for a year in large wood (foudre). Aromatically, it goes in the direction of citrus fruits, ripe apples and a little brioche, somewhat unusual at first, yet classically Alsatian and totally harmonious. After some time in the glass, it becomes even more fruity. Supple on the palate with precise, fine acidity. Like all natural wines from Justine & Patrick Bouju, bottled unfiltered and unsulphured.
