Region: Alsace, France
Varietal: 100% Riesling
Tasting Note: The bouquet is a clear, precise and frank statement of youthfulness with an agreeably perfumed fruity and floral expression of aroma which leaves an impression of healthy and juvenile freshness; there is also an elegantly subtle hint of minerality at first which will become more stated after a few years laid down. The aroma combines spring flowers, fern, almond tree and pistachio nuts, white peach, lemon grass with a hint of salt from the chalky mineral-rich soil. There is the notable signature of the great wine-making region which is typical to a Riesling.
On the palate it is clearly a dry Riesling of the highest quality with a full, broad, juicy and strong structure, complimented with a wonderful astringency which adds length and character to the flavour.
A very fine Riesling of great class, with the subtle touch of mineral that will enable it to age well.
