Bestheim – Riesling 2015 – Grand Cru Schlossberg – Alsace

The nose is mineral, racy and offers a good structure as well as a very slight intensity. It reveals notes of ripe apple, flowers and slight notes of peach combined with subtle hints of quenette as well as very discreet touches of spices, almonds and an imperceptible touch of pepper (in the background). The palate is fruity, mineral, straight, racy, ample and offers fat, a good roundness, aerial, an acid frame as well as finesse. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / crushed flat peach, brugnon and crushed apple associated with small touches of quenette, a subtle hint of honeysuckle as well as a very discreet hint of ripe lemon (in the background). Good length.
