Riesling Grand Cru Pfingstberg 2014
This wine has a beautiful deep yellow colour with a mineral and woody nose with a touch of citrus fruits and white flowers.
In the mouth, the attack is lively and frank with a strong lemony side that predominates, then appears a mineral and salty side, almost tannic, characteristic of young Pfingstberg.
It should be noted that the Pfingstbergs, like the Enchenbergs, are very lemony in their youth but make a tight turn towards minerality after 6 to 10 years of ageing. As a result, the ageing time will depend on how you enjoy the wine. Decanting in the first few years is strongly recommended.
Young man, he will do wonders on oysters, shellfish, seafood, fish cooked with lemon or hard cheeses.
Older, it will go perfectly with Alsatian dishes, cold meats or processed cheeses (fondues, raclette, etc…)
