Tasting Notes

This has incredible white pepper and slate aromas and flavors with dried fruits such as lemons, limes and papaya. Full-bodied, dry and very intense. It goes on for minutes. This won't be available until 2019.

Greenish straw. Great balance! Higher residual sugar than usual and super-easy to love. A very flattering vintage of Clos Ste Hune. Just perfection of Riesling balance. No shortage of fruit but extremely tense too. Wonderful breadth and length on a modest, non-flashy frame. Very long.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2018

Cool, aristocratic and iron-rich on the nose where some flinty notes are displayed the 2012 Riesling Clos Ste Hune starts very pure and demanding on the nose. On the palate you can find as much energy and tension as in an electric power station. The wine is very clear, fresh and pure, shows lots of salt on the very elegant and seductive palate. The finish is very long and complex and indicates a terrific aging potential.
