2016 Dirler-Cadé Riesling Saering Grand Cru

2016 Dirler-Cadé Riesling Saering Grand Cru


“Pale straw-green. Very elegant yet powerful aromas and flavors of pomaceous fruit and aromatic herbs, complicated by hints of graphite and white flowers. Finishes long and clean, featuring a lovely mineral undertone, refreshing saline bite and repeating green apple and nectarine nuances (13.5% alcohol, 4.5 g/l residual sugar, and 7 g/l total acidity). A lovely, deep Riesling wine that offers a real step up in concentration and refinement from Dirler-Cadé’s Spiegel and Kitterlé bottlings in 2016. According to Jean Dirler, the presence of deep, porous clay formations in the soil helps the Saering perform very well in drought years such as 2016; by contrast, the Spiegel also has clay soils, but they are more compact and have less water retention capacity.” 93+ Ian D’Agata
