TASTING NOTES
This wine is produced from 100% Riesling grapes from the Grand Cru classified site of the Altenberg Vineyard in Bergheim owned by Gustave Lorentz. The dominant soil of this area is clayey and calcareous; the vines from which this wine is obtained are very old, between 30 and 50 years. Pride of the Bergheim winegrowers, the Altenberg has been renowned for its fine wines since the end of the 13th century. Altenberg Grand Cru wines are known for the perfect balance between their subtle and distinctive nose and their powerful and virile body. They are the gastronomic wines par excellence. They age at least 10/15 years, in fact this splendid 2004 has now reached its full maturity, and is ready to be enjoyed at its best for Christmas 2020. Complex notes of botrytis are interspersed with an unusual aroma of pine. The elegant palate gives way to a very long finish with concentrated notes of petrol and lemon. This is a wine for gastronomic lunches or important occasions: excellent with fish dishes in sauce, seafood, pork or veal cooked with vegetables.
