97pointsJosmeyer 2015 Hengst Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace)

Cellar Selection

Gentle but aromatic notes of ripe pear have a welcome edge of lemon zest about them on the nose. On the palate the full force of the fruit becomes apparent. There are tropical overtones of wonderfully tart passion fruit while ripe tangy citrus holds sway with the pervasive freshness of tangerine and orange. This is intense, supremely aromatic, straight as an arrow and very concentrated. The finish is bold and dry with a long zesty echo. Gorgeous now but full of potential. Drink now through 2040.
