Maison Pettermann has a long wine tradition, handed down from father to son.
It was 1928 when Fernand Pettermann founded the company. The first bottling dates back to 1964. Without expanding excessively, the estate can vinify all the Alsatian vines with the right attention, preserving the typicality of the different terroirs. The soils are revitalized through the plowing of the rows, natural grassing and the addition of organic fertilizers. There are numerous manual operations such as harvesting, destemming, or even summer and winter pruning, to avoid too frequent passage of the machines.

The sample is crystalline, straw yellow, with very light golden reflections, of moderate consistency.
The olfactory examination highlights floral notes, hints of peach and a slight nuance of hydrocarbon, as well as strong mineral hints.
The sip is round, perfectly balanced in its components, persuasive, with good persistence. Sample of marked acidity with a persistent citrus finish. It is recommended in combination with raw fish.
