*Cellar Selection* This late release, aging for five years, has produced a majestic wine. Its breadth of flavor, with ripe fruits as well as intense structure, are gently transitioning from the first flush of youth to a more mature character. Intensely textured, tight, ready to spring, it shows the beauty of maturing Riesling. Drink now, although it will age many more years.
Lorentz's white-golden 2008 Riesling Grand Cru Altenberg de Bergheim Vieilles Vignes offers an aromatic bouquet of herbal flavors yet is svelt, discreet and elegant in its fruit aromas which I find absolutely delicious and inviting. Very delicate and highly elegant on the palate which is almost Mosel-like in its floral and finesse-full expression and buoyant finish. The acidity is so lively and piquant here and so perfectly interwoven with fruity, herbal and mineral flavors that this is one of the finest and most refined Rieslings I have tasted from this excellent vintage this year. Ready to drink and to enjoy over the next 5-6 years.
