Bettane & Desseauve 2015: 17/20 points «The richest of the series, the acidity of the vintage affords it balance. Beautiful saline finish.» –
A true vin de garde – 6 g/l residual sugar – Food pairings: blue lobster, ginger and oliver oil hollandaise, cauliflower en texture.
“Straw-green. White peach and buttercups on the inviting nose. Then dense and suave in the mouth, with minerality lifting the sweet white stone fruit and anise flavors. Finishes clean and long, with an impression of tannins and a repeating anise note. At 7.4 g/l total acidity, this is the most acid of Dirler-Cadé’s grand cru Rieslings.” 92 points Ian d’Agata
