Alsace Grand Cru is a wine made with grapes coming from a designated plot that has been classified as a Grand Cru - the highest rank in the Alsace classification. This dry Riesling is a medium to full-bodied white, showing complex and multiple aromas - ripe fruit, honey, stone and spices... all this balanced by a beautiful minerality and a long, yummy finish. A stunning wine here, especially for this price!

|What experts say|
91/100 "From a steep Grand Cru on calcareous marl soils, the citrus-colored Riesling Kirchberg de Barr opens with a clear, intense and concentrated, elegant, fresh and aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe yellow-fleshed fruit aromas intermixed with complex mineral and flinty flavors. Full-bodied, round and elegant on the palate, this is a lush and salty, very fine and elegant, yet complex and persistent, Kirchberg with a touch of creaminess from the extract and long lees ageing. This very well-structured Riesling Grand Cru has a pure and fresh backbone and can age for another 10-15 years, perhaps even longer." (previous vintage)
93/100 "There is a touch of smoke and stone that lends a darker aspect to the ripe but crisp apple fruit. The palate has that same taut but very full-fruited feel—of very tightly held ample fruit reminiscent of red-cheeked, aromatic apples. This is both powerful and svelte. The palate is dry and finishes very clean, leaving you with haunting apple notes and fresh lemon." (previous vintage)
