94pointsGustave Lorentz 2012 Altenberg de Bergheim Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace)

A balm-like combination of honey, lemon oil, chamomile tincture and baked apple washes over the senses with just one sniff. This aromatic richness is reprised on the concentrated palate but finds a perfect counterpoint in the resulting dryness. Bright, pure lemon guides and frames with its freshness while the aromas swirl and swish—oh the joy of mature Riesling! The finish is dry with pronounced lemon. Drink through 2028 Anne Krebiehl MW
