The Grand Cru vineyard where this Riesling is born, is a very solar, full-south site, whose warm days are contrasted by nights cooled by winds from the nearby Vosges mountain range – a combination that’s perfect for wine with flamboyant aromas yet very fresh. Its poor, well-aerated soil gifts the wines with a compelling finesse, although they might take some time to develop, both in the cellar and in the glass. Almost half of the vines are 60 years old, the rest is about 40 years old. Aged for 11 months on the lees. Expect lush, exotic and candied fruit mingled with sweet spices and citrusy notes, with an acidic backbone that asks for another sip.
