About

93

"The 2017 Alsace Grand Cru Schlossberg Riesling is clear and fresh on the nose, with Victoria pineapple aromas. Lush and aromatic on the palate, this is a very intense, structured, refined and salty Schlossberg with a firm (tannin) structure and long finish. Tasted October 2018."

92+ Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Lively straw-green. Ripe pineapple, apricot, and melon on the nose and in the mouth are lifted by hints of crushed rocks and jasmine. Closes long and vibrant, with persistent reminders of powdered stones and jasmine. Very pure, mineral-accented wine that is still fairly closed but will undoubtedly blossom into something special. This wine is made from grapes picked in the top part of the Schlossberg, an area prone to water stress; recent hot, dry vintages such as 2017 have forced the estate to declassify many grapes every year, and therein lies part of the reason for this wine’s noteworthy quality level. About 8,000 bottles made."

91 Wine Spectator

"Clean-cut acidity enlivens this light- to medium-bodied white, with a minerally hint of petrol underscoring the crunchy white peach and pink grapefruit zest flavors as they play out on the spiced finish. Drink now through 2025. 696 cases made, 100 cases imported. — AN"

Product Description:

"Offers a delicate nose of fresh orchard fruit and light floral notes with a touch of beeswax. The granite of the terroir can be felt through a crisp and vivid acidity. The palate is light-bodied and balanced with a slight minerality for an endless finish." -Importer
