Critic Notes

Sourced from two parcels in the same altitude but separated by 400 meters, the 2014 Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg offers a very pure and rather coolish, crystalline and lemon-flavored bouquet that indicates a good ripeness and fruit concentration. Full-bodied and very juicy on the palate, this is a pretty intense but also piquant and finessed Sommerberg. It combines the ripeness and density of 40-year-old vines Riesling with the freshness of 320 meters altitude. Still very young, this Sommerberg will benefit from further bottle ageing.
