I wish all Riesling producers used screw cap. This is pretty tired and washed out. Not much life or enjoyment left in this sadly. 😳

Pale lemon green; clear, medium intensity developing aromas of wet stone, blossom, white peach, lime. Dry, with high acidity, medium alcohol, medium body. On the palate, medium intensity flavors of lime, nectarine, wet stone, a hint of smoke and a bit of mushroom. Long finish, to drink now but has potential for further aging. Very good quality.

Love it when one of the best vintages of the decade is substantially discounted. Thank you, US Consumer; please continue to be clueless regarding Alsace. Thank you.

Even on Day 2 the reductive character inhibited full expression. Probably needs 3-5 more years to open.

Steely nose, giving way to a more delicate palate on the finish.

Delicate Alsatian Riesling. Bone-dry, pear, apple, zippy crispness. Great at cellar temperature. A very pure example. 2011 vintage

Ripe apple and lemon on the nose. Minerals and salinity in the mouth. Could use more acidity. Drink now through 2018.

Green apple, white flower, and thyme on the nose. Mouthwatering acidity. Good now through 2020.
