Great success of the vintage, superior to 2015.
SCHOFFWEG 2016 - "the way of the sheep.
Calcareous soil of the aalenian
Dense, less busy dress (fermented in the barrel).
-"Mental landscape": hot mental landscape, open, chocolatey. Already of the flour to the nose, much
consistency, soft, warm brown color, eased.
-Touch of mouth: wine of material, wide limestone, with this sticky, floury side very
feature. The material is more important than usual, while remaining highly drinkable:
will be ready soon, saw the race and distinction.
-The port or energy: great wine by its complexity, its direct and major material and a length
The "path of the sheep"... leading to the Grasberg is an exceptional terroir, a thin slab limestone of the Aalenian, perched above the plain, ultimate extension of the nipple of the Altenberg de Bergheim looking East and moderately warm climates marked by intense ventilation. Drained by the North in the summer wind, protected by the Foehn in the fall, this very poor region where is flush with the yellow limestone scree, allows a true expression of the fruits of this very complex vine, without development of rot. Complantees vineyards Riesling and Pinot.
Mix of juicy severity, fruity smoothness, like the skin of a grape tannins, dancing acidity and meaty vanilla. Taste like a trip, an encounter, the warmth of a ground and above the shimmering of the stars. (Jean-Michel Deiss) - will work perfectly on a square of calf to Morels or St Jacques toasted sesame.
