Beautiful wine gastronomy. A lot of SAP and salivation.
"Alliance rocks and citrus, a very nice nose, mouth begins in width, with a lot of delicacy and precision, while greedy should be still ' wait." 16/20 guide Bettane and Desseauve 2019
Engelgarten or "garden of Angels".
Land of 'Serious', white ground and the marked water deficit
Busy wine fermented, strong color testifying to the presence of red grapes.
Mental landscape : wine of heat, light, density also. We're looking at a landscape open, circular, marked by a large field opening, one side large photographic angle. The colors are more earthy, Brown, shimmering.
Touch of mouth: wine, cold; vertical, down straight, but in thickness, width and strength, with a salivating dimension in return almost painful, so it is intense, rough, stony. Dry mouth, much as if it was sucking the rock: the salivary glands do not follow...
The port or energy: information is long, intense, intrusive, with one side rough, dry, ribbed, very special. Some would say minerality, but stoniness seems more suited to this wine with a depth of amazing construction. For me great success! Noble bitter with a sharp finish suddenly into the empty glass: great wine!
Beautiful wine of Graves: stoniness and energy.
Great terroir of Graves, the Engelgarten is one of the best-known terroir of Bergheim. His gritty structure, the white ground, its marked water deficit, lets get to large physiological maturity of the grapes.
The vineyard, old enough, is drawn and leads with extreme severity (very short size, labour, composting). The vine is suffering and produces small crops of great complexity
