Kuentz-Bas Riesling Grand Cru Pfersigberg

31,80 €

The Grand Cru vineyard of Pfersigberg is one of the gems of Kuentz-Bas and produces amazing Riesling with depth, vigor, power and truly great potential for ageing. Additional effort is required to farm biodynamically these rather unapproachable plots with steep slopes and poor limestone soils, but all this terroir imparts the Riesling that comes of it with minerality, richness, length and an impressive ability for ageing. A truly unique terroir that upon cellaring will reveal its delicate, full of minerality imprint on the wine.

More info

From the steep slopes of Pfersigberg and the rich in fossils limestone soils, Riesling manages to combine great levels of maturity and juicy character with intense minerality and refreshing acidity. Citrus fruit aromas, succulent white-fleshed fruits, honey and a smoky mineral character lead to a rich, honeyed palate with spicy notes and persistent finish. Alsatian Rieslings are magic wines, and the way that this masterpiece of Kuentz-Bas winery will age in the bottle is also magestic. All you have to do is just take your time and wait for it!
