Details

Yellow pale green dress. The nose is discreet and takes time to open up, to finally show complex fresh citrus and notes of grilled aromas. It is tight and his reserve, but it is easy to feel the great potential of this wine. Mouth shows a delicate and fresh, with a very delicious and juicy finish. This wine tastes very dry, the acidity is complex and brings great elegance, a wine of aristocratic style some might say. The wine evolves slowly in the glass (no change after 6 hours), foreshadowing a high guard.

Note 18.5 Bettane and Desseauve Guide 2019

The Clos Windsbuhl is located on a former sedimentary limestone of the secondary period. Higher in altitude, in the forest, he is also a late maturity climate. In 2016, this Vineyard has been harvested four weeks after that of Turckheim. It is difficult to understand how the composition of the soil eventually influence the character of a wine, but experience shows that the soil rich in magnesium brings a certain grainy element to the structure and sapid acidity which can occasionally stop fermentation early. This was not the case in 2016, the Cos Windsbuhl 2016 Riesling is very dry!
