Description of the wine Riesling Clos Windsbuhl 2001

The riesling at the Clos Windsbuhl is produced on the upper part of the hill side, where the soils are shallower and only recovered with a thin layer of earth. We have in fact two different parts in the Riesling, one planted in 1989 and the other one being very old. The climate is one of the coolest of the estate and this parcel of Riesling is often one of the last one to be harvested on the estate, well after the pinot-gris of the same vineyard. 2001 was an easy vineyard at the Windsbuhl, especially for the Riesling which was very healthy.

Tasting notes

01/2003 : The nose is still characterized by the long lees contact and important yeast autolysis. However, the terroir shows through strongly, with intense exotic and citrus flavours. The palate is ample, rich but finishes dry with typical mineral stony aromas. Classic balance making this wine particularly interesting with delicate fish courses.
