A touch of flint flashes up briefly before fruity notes of ripe juicy apricot and peach take over. On the palate they are joined by a flash of lemon freshness that brightens and heightens the slender but concentrated palate. Lemon and peach, tangerine and mirabelle fill mouth and mind while the freshness blows away any sensory cobwebs. This is deeply satisfying, lovely now but sure to improve. Drink now through 2030.
Plenty of dried pear and apple character. Quite a powerful wine, but with vibrant acidity and minerality at the finish. Drink any time through 2025. Made from organic grapes.
Vivid straw-yellow. Bright lemony, jasmine and mineral zing on the nose and in the mouth, helping to lift the rather ripe apple and pear notes. Deeper and fresher than the Riesling Le Kottabe, with a more vertical mouthfeel. Finishes bright and citrusy, with very good length. On highly calcareous soils (and you can tell from the citrusy mouthfeel). The vines used to make this wine will be included in the Heimbourg, an extremely high-quality lieu-dit that will soon be named a premier cru (and quite rightly, in my opinion). Already in bottle, this lovely wine will most likely go on sale in a few months. (ID)
Grown on limestone and picked pretty early in the middle of September, the 2015 Riesling Le Dragon is a single parcel of old vines Riesling from Turckheim. It has a deep, cool and pretty intense, lemon-fresh and mineral-flavored bouquet. Full-bodied, intense and elegant this is a mouthful of well-structured Riesling. It has a rich and lush fruit but also a firm mineral and tannic structure, followed by a long and tension-filled finish. This is an excellent Riesling on premier cru level. Isabelle describes it as "more wild, ruffled and large" compared to the other Rieslings from the valley. (SR)
This creamy white is light- to medium-bodied and framed by juicy acidity, with a bass note of smoke and flavors of melon, yellow plum and candied pink grapefruit zest, showing a touch of almond skin. Drink now through 2025. (AN, Web only-2018)
