Alsace Grand Cru

We drank a bottle of Alsatian riesling this past weekend. And it was glorious. Tallest bottle of wine I've ever seen in my life.

What a study in contrast with German rieslings! This was from Schlossberg, a Grand Cru vineyard of Alsace. So sharp, so creased...such a Gothic wine!

Hard edges on the nose, but develops nicely on the palate. Long, dry finish. Minerality really starts revealing itself after decanting. Just a lovely wine, perfect with the food we were having.
