“On the very generous palate this is super-succulent with stunning balance, but on the nose it starts out closed with a hint of funk (reduction). As this blows off, honeycomb, pineapple and summer-meadow aromas slowly build. Super long and super silky finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drinkable now, but better from 2023.”
Vines (over 40 years) are located at the base of the Grand Cru Schlossberg hill. On a floor of granite rocks, the soils are brown, slightly acidic, pebbly, excellent mineral fertility, shallow depth at the top of the slope, and deeper at the bottom. The Schlossberg’s steep, south-facing slopes ensure exposure to optimal sunshine. The soils are very well-drained and warm up very rapidly. The Schlossberg is particularly favorable for Riesling (which is a late-maturing grape and needs as much sunshine as it can get), producing here a very pure expression of the grape, with remarkable finesse and elegance.
