2015 Charles Baur "Cuvée Charles" Riesling Alsace

SKU #1365188 92 points Wine & Spirits

 A selection of Riesling named for the estate’s founder, this grows on clay-limestone soils, mostly around the village of Eguisheim. It’s a rich wine with enough limestone abrasion to the acidity that it feels clean and fresh, the generously concentrated flavors of lemon and golden apple edged with bitter notes of quinine, dandelion greens and lemon zest. Tingling with energy.  (4/2018)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Delightful peachy notes define the fruity friendly nose. The palate adds zesty lemon to this rich fruit to create one of those dramatic and moreish Rieslings that teeter enticingly on the brink of peachy richness and citrus tang. The palate is slender, light footed and dry, the finish is whistle clean and wonderfully appetizing. (AK)  (8/2017)

90 points James Suckling

 A fresh and focused riesling with sliced pear, green apple and hints of mineral. Medium body, crisp and pretty. Drink now. From organic grapes.  (6/2017)

Vinous

 Bright straw. Broad aromas and flavors of smoky minerals, balsamic oils and ripe yellow fruit. Tactile and broad on the palate, presenting dense fruit flavors on entry, then more diffuse and only medium-long on the back end. (ID)  (5/2018)

An absolute ridiculous bargain the 2015 Charles Baur "Cuvee Charles" Riesling is a fantastic example of the high quality of Alsatian Riesling that can be had at incredibly low prices. This wine sings with citrus, floral and mineral notes with a zippy palate that energizes itself thanks to a nice punch of acidity and orchard fruits. Robust and clean this is a great choice for the Riesling enthusiast or the beginner just starting to walk down the Riesling path.
Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2025
