If you're a Riesling fan, chances are you’ll have heard of Schoenenbourg, a Grand Cru from within France's picture postcard Alsace. It's been a source of stunning Rieslings since the 16th century. This 2018 has steely minerality and intense fruit.
"Utterly delicious. My favourite Riesling by far. A touch of sweetness and delicious tang!"
Online Review For the 2015 vintage
Welcome to Alsace. It’s a very pretty patch of northeast France, peppered with little villages that wouldn’t look out of place in a book of German fairy tales. The Germanic influences don’t end there – here, the vineyards are planted with Riesling, the three Pinots and Gewurztraminer, rather than Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Winemakers even use the tall, slender – and far more elegant – bottles as favoured by the Germans. Although it’s a cool part of France, Alsace is also the country’s sunniest region. This combination leads to clean, crisp whites of huge intensity – particularly in this famous Grand Cru. The hand picked fruit from steep, south facing slopes produces a dry white with remarkable fruit intensity. Delicious now, or cellar.
