DO­MAINE OSTERTAG RIES­LING AL­SACE GRAND CRU MUENCHBERG 2015

A dense yet en­er­getic white with sliced peach, flint and stone char­ac­ter. Medium to full body, solid palate and a fresh, vivid fin­ish. Made from or­gan­i­cally grown grapes and Deme­ter-ap­proved. Drink now.

Dark, pow­er­ful and ripe with plenty of dry tan­nins. This wine car­ries all that rather well and the fin­ish is long and bal­anced in spite of the mas­sive tan­nic struc­ture. This has so much that isn’t yet show­ing prop­erly. Try to be pa­tient, be­cause this will be bet­ter from 2019 through to 2030.

97 points MURÉ RIES­LING AL­SACE GRAND CRU VORBOURG CLOS ST LANDELIN SE­LEC­TION DE GRAINS NOBLES 2015

Enor­mously dense, dried-fruit aro­mas, lush and trop­i­cal al­most to the point of deca­dence. How­ever, there’s enough acid­ity to carry this. The true depths are still buried be­neath all the rich­ness. If you want to ex­pe­ri­ence them, you will have to wait un­til maybe 2025, though this wine could live 50 years. Made from bio­dy­namic grapes and Deme­ter-cer­ti­fied.

98 points FAMILLE HUGEL RIES­LING AL­SACE SCHOELHAMMER 2008

A very com­plex rose pe­tal and herbal ries­ling that is ridicu­lously fresh for al­most a decade of age. Very mus­cu­lar and con­cen­trated, but still cool and fresh with enor­mous min­eral depth at the fin­ish. Just com­ing to its peak, but has decades of age­ing po­ten­tial.
