Dress dark, thick, still very marked by the lie, but dressed in Orange flashes. Nose like Fireworks content, Cinchona, the bursts of ash and incense, the swirls of white tea, punctuated of clove, saturated with passion fruit, sky streaked deep minerality. Mouth totally hermetic and vertical, so fresh, tartaric and remote that it becomes saline, gypsum glorious finale, of suffering and mineral vibration. Great wine, to decant imperatively. Wonderful!
Powerful perfumes d orange bark and rubbed Pebble, mouth d ' a remarkable purity on the zest, prodigious elegance and finesse, power, precision, verticality, l ' acidity is magical." "It's the top of the cellar in the vintage and probably l ' one of the heights of l ' Alsace.
The greatest terroir in wine of Alsatian guard: marls of the Keuper on bed of sulphur-rich gypsum
Mental landscape: dark wine, cornea (nail burned the horse we ferre). Opens onto a landscape open, more clearly marked by the water, wet chalk, wet plaster, mud from a beach in the North under a leaden sky. The nose touch is curious, sharp, iodized, some lemon zest circulate, but cold, remote, finishing on noble bitters. .
Touch of mouth: wine begins with seduction, but a somewhat intellectual seduction, first type of the class or Nobel Prize. We say: Yes, OK. Then fires a tidal wave acid, violent, salivating at the back of the mouth, gently drying the mandible, digging a large, violent, final vinosity. I am struck by this beast, his fatal attack, its bite.
The port or the energy: the greatest wine of the winery, the most intimidating also: there is a unique depth, a telluric «cold», an infinite psalmody. I'm too small...
The SCHOENENBOURG, known since the middle ages is the flagship of the vineyards of RIQUEWIHR.
The wines of this commune are born on this soil and contributed to the near-universal awareness.
This region is distinguished by its topography: (South side, situation in bottom of Valley, steep slope) and its very special Geology: iridescent and gypseous of the KEUPER marls and covered by applications of Vosges sandstone). The combination of a light soil, not sticky and a basement clay, rich in nutrients, with a good water retention, probably explains the dominant character of the terroir on the grape variety and the particularity of the SCHOENENBOURG wines.
In any case, the wines of the Schoenenbourg Express with undeniable skills to guard and travel, a richness, an extraordinary corpulence. Ability finally to integrate potentials of very high remaining sugars, linked to the Noble rot almost always present.
