Alsace Riesling Grand Cru Kanzlerberg, Domaine Sylvie Spielmann 2009

Inventory Status: Out of Stock - do not order this
product at this time


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.
