Ian Dagata - Vinous Media:

Healthy medium yellow color. Assertively perfumed, mineral-driven aromas of bergamot, quince and musky yellow peach, with a smoky undertone of iodine. Ripe and rich in the mouth but with a streak of lemony acidity giving a firm structural underpinning to the wine on the long finish. These Riesling vines are characterized by very small bunches and grapes, and the yield was around 50 hectoliters per hectare in 2012. This may be a very old biotype of Riesling that records show grew in the area 200 years ago but had basically been eliminated in the 1970s, when low yields were anathema to local producers.

Product Description:

"Jean-Louis and Andree seek lift and aromatic appeal, and they create alsacian wines that are on the drier end of the spectrum. This Riesling has floral and stony aromas with lemony notes and lovely mineral influence. " -Importer
