    If you are looking for a stunning bone dry Riesling, you just found it. This offering from Julien Schaal defines the meaning of being bone dry. Coming from one of the oldest vineyard in Alsace this Riesling is all searing minerality from blue schist soil and high tone citrus on the palate with slight floral hint in the aroma. Intense yet charming thanks to its bright energy and vivid freshness.

    For fans of nervy, tense, mineral laden white wines, have we got a Grand Cru for you! I'll be the first to admit that it's easy to take the Grand Cru copy to the people and say you're offering something special, when in fact it's just kind of meh. Not so here. Julien Schaal is an up-and-coming producer working in Alsace, a region that has largely steered clear of the market influence of collectors and still presents some of the best value in top quality, cellar worthy whites. His Kastelberg opens with a blast of citrus and fresh ginger on the nose, leading to a crisp, explosively energetic, slightly spicy palate that should slowly blossom and begin to strut its stuff within the next couple of years and continue to do so for some time. I cannot think of a better deal in classic and classy French white wine right now.

    A wonderful juxtaposition to the "Sommerberg" the Kastelberg is driven more to the minerality side of the Riesling scale with orchard fruits and petrol notes. More powerful and rich than the Sommerberg this is a stunning Riesling that deftly packages its power with a wonderful gracefulness.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2025
