Just like Eric always says, this is the most linear and austere of the Ribeauvillé Grand cru trio, broad shouldered mineral power and citric fruit, with deep sustain and purity. It is plain delicious, and I can imagine it paring crazy well with fish dishes with some cream, its austerity and cut sinking in its mineral teeth…..sign me up! A little * awarded here.
“So tight and firm with major, chalky minerality, this is a very striking dry riesling that has the depth of expression we expect from the Grand Cru category wines. So much Amalfi lemon and lemon curd, but also dill and parsley aromas. Serious depth and structure at the bold and crisp finish. Drink or hold.” 94 Stuart Piggott
“Powerfully salty, dry, linear in the mouth, a light mentholated freshness on the finish, exactly the style of the Rieslings of Ribeauvillé.” 96 Bettane et Desseauve
