Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg

2014

From a steep vineyard in Riquewihr planted with 15-50-year-old vines. A very special soil of colorful marl with thin layers of sandstone from the Vosges and Muschel limestone. 2/9 on the sweetness scale.

"The 2014 Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg has a deep, complex and flinty/smoky bouquet with tropical fruit aromas like pineapples. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with a beautiful, dense and aromatic fruit (thanks to botrytis), this Schoenenbourg has an excitingly long, pure and salty finish; there is a firm and tannic grip with gorgeous fruit intensity in the aftertaste. This is great and elegant Riesling with an ageing potential of roughly 20 years, probably more. "
