Alsace Riesling Grand Cru Kanzlerberg, Domaine Sylvie Spielmann 2009

Inventory Status: 3


From the smallest of Alsace's grand cru vineyards, situated west of Altenberg, Sylvie Spielmann's plot consists of organically and biodynamically farmed Riesling vines that are 59, 36, and 29 years-old. The vineyard rises on a steep slope with a complex soil composition of marl and limestone interspersed with barite, fluorite and cubic. The 2009 Kanzler Riesling is a stunning wine of subtlety and depth. The minerality is immediately felt and as it gradually opens up it shows more richness and power with flavors of spice and exotic fruit. A wondrous, complex Riesling that will fill decades of enjoyment. A stunning value for such a great and rare wine.

"From the smallest of the Alsatian grand cru (3.4 hectares) comes a stunner. Really. This is compelling, even with higher SO and all. The year was a rich one. Residual sugar was 10 grams, but it avoids sweet and just becomes tender, especially with the high acid and the balance and the extreme complexity. Food-worthy, it’s oddly fabulous with smoked paprika." Alice Feiring, Fering Line.
