A very long finish that is marked by chalky minerality. The way that it literally blossoms in the glass after half an hour suggests that this masterpiece has at least a couple of decades of life ahead of it. Decant if you want to drink now.

Arguably Alsace's most highly regarded Riesling, Clos Ste Hune comes from a 1.6ha parcel inside Grand Cru Rosacker, a limestone site with 50 year old vines, and is released only after several years of bottle-ageing. The nose remains discreet, a refined fusion of apple and apricot aromas, while the palate is fresh and lean, linear and pure. It's very concentrated, with good weight of fruit supported by firm underlying acidity. Beautifully balanced and very long.

Greenish straw. Great balance! Higher residual sugar than usual and super-easy to love. A very flattering vintage of Clos Ste Hune. Just perfection of Riesling balance. No shortage of fruit but extremely tense too... Greenish straw. Great balance! Higher residual sugar than usual and super-easy to love. A very flattering vintage of Clos Ste Hune. Just perfection of Riesling balance. No shortage of fruit but extremely tense too. Wonderful breadth and length on a modest, non-flashy frame. Very long. (18.5/20)

This sleek, elegant white crackles with acidity. Tightly meshed today, showing more petrol and mineral character than white peach, spice and pine notes, but the density and length should make this a superstar of the cellar. To be released Spring 2020. Best from 2022 through 2035. –AN

Cool, aristocratic and iron-rich on the nose where some flinty notes are displayed the 2012 Riesling Clos Ste Hune starts very pure and demanding on the nose. On the palate you can find as much energy and tension as in an electric power station. The wine is very clear, fresh and pure, shows lots of salt on the very elegant and seductive palate. The finish is very long and complex and indicates a terrific aging potential. - Stephan Reinhardt
