Ruhlmann, Grand Cru Riesling Frankstein Riesling 2014, Alsace, France
Tasting Note: A zippy, complex, grand cru riesling that pleases the palate with rich, bright fruit.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has a medium-plus-intensity, aromatic nose of pear drop, quince, green apple, gooseberry, lemon zest and apple blossom.
On the palate the palate the dry, grand cru riesling has medium-intensity, tart, green-fruit flavors suggested on the nose with a creamy texture supported by medium-plus acidity.
There is midpalate complexity and flavor concentration with some notes of petrol on the medium-plus, lemon-citrus-infused finish.
Bottle Note: Refreshing hints of citrus fruits and floral aromas. A harmonious and complex wine. It expresses floral flavors with mineral overtones typical of granite terroirs. It goes particularly well with the finest fish, seafood and sushi, as well as sophisticated entrees and white meat. Please serve chilled.
