Domaine Roland Schmitt 2016 Altenberg de Bergbieten Grand Cru Alsace Riesling

A clear, yellow colour with yellow-green highlights. The bouquet is complex, with a refreshing attack with notes that show off the typical character of the terroir (cedar, tobacco, Earl Grey tea, beeswax, etc.). The mouth is dominated by the mineral, salty characteristics of Altenberg, with fruit in the young wine giving way with time to more complex aromas of thyme and other herbs. The finish is long-lasting, helped by an elegant, mature acidity that is to be expected in the finest Grands Crus. Beautiful textbook riesling from Alsace. Nose is of ripe lime blossoms and mineral. Great acidity and just a bit of residual sugar power this wine across the palate with grace and persistence.
