Riesling Clos Saint Landelin 2018

Riesling Clos Saint Landelin

The vine:

Located in Rouffach, the Clos Saint Landelin, fully owned by the Muré family, covers an area of 12 hectares (29 acres). It marks the southern end of the Grand Cru Vorbourg. Located at the exit of the valley, it is exposed to the south and benefits from a good amount of sunshine until late in the afternoon. The north and west winds ensure that the vines remain healthy until harvest time. The steep slopes of the Clos Saint Landelin require terraced cultivation. Its marl and limestone soil is particularly stony. The subsoil is composed of calcareous sandstone from the Bajocian period (Middle Jurassic) and calcareous conglomerates from the Oligocene period. These elements come together to form a very distinctive terroir. The vineyard is worked in biodynamic agriculture. The vines are tightly planted, at about 10,000 plants per hectare (4,000 plants per acre).

96 - James Suckling: Where is the lobster? The very complex mirabelle-tart and spice nose pulls you into this stunning dry riesling that beautifully balances vibrant acidity and ripeness that borders on the exotic. Very straight and long finish that’s got a lot of mineral subtelty. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold. (November 2020)
