Riesling Sélection de Grains Nobles Clos Saint Landelin 2016

Riesling Sélection de Grains Nobles 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).

Press:

96 - Vinous - January 2019: "Bright straw. Deep, refined aromas of peach, nectarine, lemon, jelly and tangerine jam, complicated by spicy botrytis (...)." Ian d’Agata
95 - James Suckling - May 2018: "An exotic fruit extravaganza ! Luscious and seductive. This remains totally straight, all thanks to the vibrant acidity and purity of the flavors. Right through the very long clean finish. Delicious now, but this wine will develop magnificently over at least a quarter of century..."
