"Such an elegant wine for this Grand Cru that tends towards aromatic richness, the pineapple and basil notes very delicate on the nose. On the medium-to full-bodied palate there’s more succulence, but even there the crushed-stone minerality keeps everything very cool and straight. Very long, focused finish with so great vitality and very fine tannins. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold."

"The 2020 Riesling Brand Grand Cru comes from vines that ore just an average of 20 years old, planted on exposed, warm and granitic soils. This 2020 has an intriguing nose that unites ripe, fragrant peach with the beguiling scent of wild strawberries. There is a beautiful aromatic quality. The palate is precise, cool, focused and brimming with lemon. A slight dried lemon peel edge channels its undoubted energy. The bone-dry finish is totally mouth-watering and comes with much drive.
