Domaine Stoeffler – Riesling 2015 – Kirchberg de Barr Grand Cru – Alsace

The nose is aromatic and offers complexity as well as a slight richness / power. It reveals notes of flowers / honeysuckle, pear and yellow peach combined with touches of nutmeg, quince as well as subtle hints of exotic fruits (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of Cuben pepper (in background). The palate is fruity, mineral, juicy, well-balanced and offers a slight suavity, a slight intensity, depth as well as a mineral / juicy frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of peach, pear and slight notes of honeysuckle associated with slight touches of quince, nutmeg, mirabelle as well as discreet touches of quenette and sweet grapefruit. Good length. Good persistence (especially with touches of flowers and ripe fruits).
