2007 Meyer-Fonné Wineck-Schlossberg Riesling Grand Cru Alsace

SKU #1213068 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Meyer-Fonne 2007 Riesling Wineck-Schlossberg smells of plum, cherry, flowers and herbs and incorporates a bitter fruit pit element on the palate, all of which reminds me a bit of a Saar Riesling. But here we have plush texture and considerable stuffing allied to brightness on the palate. A long finish incorporates grapefruit peel, licorice, honey, and persistently cyanic bitterness. This formidably concentrated Riesling should be worth following for at least a dozen years. (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good pale color. Peppery aromatic herbs, raw pineapple, anise and flowers on the perfumed nose. Rich, dense and thick but vibrant, with soft citrus and elderberry flavors lifted by some unabsorbed CO2 Really resounds with minerality, mandarin orange and pepper on the back end. Still youthfully unevolved but sappy on the finish. Today this is the most floral of Meyer's trio of riesling grand crus, finishing with a lime tea note that reminded me of muscat Ottonel. Meyer volunteered that he would love to be able to make this style of wine every year. (this very sunny site was harvested at 13.8% potential alcohol on September 17 with very ripe skins but good acidity, according to Meyer) (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2008)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Driven by lively acidity, this smoky white shows a subtle and elegant sense of style. It's layered with hints of white peach, chamomile, grapefruit zest and biscuit, with a lip-smacking finish. Drink now through 2020. 40 cases imported. (AN) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

K&L Notes

From the Domaine: "As a terroir on a very crumbly binary mica granite known as "de Turckheim", the Wineck-Schlossberg Grand Cru has a south-facing exposure. The nose is pure and delicate with elegant floral and spiced notes. The palate is ethereal, feminine, with a fresh finish and plenty of mineral tension. A dry, distinguished wine that keeps very well."
