Taut but rich; powerful, yellow-fruited, citrus and almost opulent, with great minerality and compelling transparency and luminosity. To keep. Drinking Window 2019-2035. (MR)
This racehorse of a wine marries power and grace, showing a beautiful nose of ripe white fruit and slate-tinged mineral that draws you into the glass. There's a buoyant quality to the acidity that enlivens the creamy, finely meshed flavors of white nectarine, with notes of Meyer lemon zest and accents of star anise, marjoram and saline. The long finish goes on and on. To be released Spring 2019. Drink now through 2035. (AN)
A bright and vivid white with sliced-apple, lemon and lime aromas and flavors. Full to medium body, a dense palate and minerals, stones and dried fruit on the finish. Solid finish. Drink now.
The 2015 Grand Cru Schlossberg Riesling is only the second vintage (after 2014) and comes from a plot straight above the castle of Kaysersberg and below the forest that was planted 35 years ago. The wine opens with a very clear, fresh and cool bouquet, indicating lovely, concentrated, precise and fresh fruit. On the palate, this is a highly elegant, pure, rich, intense but lifted and finessed Riesling à la Trimbach, with fine but concentrated fruit, good acidity and a lingering salinity. It is a cool-climate Riesling coming from a higher and cooler plot in this prestigious, south-facing cru, which was perfect in a warm vintage like 2015. In fact, the 2015 is a great, dry, granite Riesling that was harvested with just 35 hl/ha and has a total acidity of 8.6 grams per liter! Total production: 3,500+ bottles. (SR)
Dark straw-yellow. Violet, grapefruit and minerals on the explosive, complex nose. Enters large and soft, offering flavors similar to the aromas, then linear and very precise, with a tactile mouthfeel and a beautiful lemony finish. This tastes very dry, which is a good thing with Schlossberg wines - they usually aren’t blessed with the highest total acidity values, and when too much residual sugar is left, the wines often end up tasting flabby.
