Tasting Notes

Very complex, cool nose with a lot of herbal notes including tarragon. This has a unique personality and a lot of elegance, but it needs a couple more years in the bottle to reveal all its riches. Long, cool and delicate finish. Made from biodynamic grapes. Ecocert certified

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2017

Intense yellow in color, the 2015 Riesling Clos Windsbuhl is deep, clear, pure, ripe and rich on the nose, with smoky and toasty (speck) aromas and lovely fresh lemon flavors. Coming from pure, thinner limestone soils, this is a tension-filled, pure and salty, but also rich and lush Riesling with great tension. Still closed but highly elegant, full of finesse and tension, this Riesling is provided with great length and aging potential. The 2015 Windsbuhl is going to be bottled with 12.4 grams of residual sugar and 12.3% alcohol. Fine tannins and grip here. Gorgeous, but keep it for ten years or more. So pure, so salty, so fresh and finessed. Tasted from the cask (on the fine lees already) in February 2017. To be bottled some days later.
