Wine region: Alsace - France
Tasting notes:The aromatic, deliciously refreshing wine that tastes like the nectar of apples, apricots, peaches and pears and comes in the tall slender glass bottle. Usually crisp, due to its high levels of acidity, Riesling is known for its strong floral aromas.
Wine Advocate 93 / 100
“The 2007 Riesling Grand Cru Pfingstberg offers a super precise, intense, fresh and mineral bouquet of bright fruits (candied lemon and orange peel), flowers and milled sandstone along with lovely flavors of maturity and potted ginger. There is a great purity and lemon-freshness on the nose which is repeated on the palate where a certain austerity and piquancy is revealed but most of all a ripe and concentrated, well-structured fruit along with a lingering, salty minerality. The finish is complex and very persistent but the wine is still young and tension-filled. I would either decant it for some hours or, much better, keep it in the cellar for 2 to 12 more years. There are at least 10 years to go for this impressively incisive and concentrated Pfingstberg Riesling.”
