Tastes like Winning! This is an absolute steal for the Cru and an electrifying Riesling. The nose is formidable and complex with smoky peppercorn, ginger and lemon peel wrapped in toasty oak. The firm but subtly oily palate delivers exotic fruit and oyster shells, gaining texture and even more nuance as it warms in the glass. We only wish we had more bottles to share – this one is likely to disappear.
Smoky peppercorn, piquant peach kernel, nose-wrinkling ginger, boxwood and lemon peel as well as a toasty hint of oak make for a formidably forceful and complex nose. Happily, all of those aggressive notes are accompanied on a firm but subtly oily palate by juicy peach flesh and bright Meyer lemon. The finish activates the salivary glands and leaves the palate tingling and glowing in its evocation of salt, pepper, raw ginger and peach kernel. This ball of energy should prove fascinating to follow.
