Tightly wound and so, it needs some time to unfurl. But it already has a stunningly long and pure finish. Better from 2019 and has long-term aging potential beyond that. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.

Harvested four weeks after the Brand in Turckheim, the 2016 Alsace Riesling Clos Windsbuhl is intense, fresh and flinty on the nose, where lovely mirabelles and lemon notes intertwine with the Muschelkalk expression of the coolish, southeast-facing terroir located adjacent to the forest between Hunawihr and Riquewihr. On the palate, this is a mouth-filling, fresh, elegant and quite mealy-textured Riesling with remarkable finesse and elegance. The 2016 is still bitter and a bit astringent, but its vitality, concentration and juiciness are very promising. - Stephan Reinhardt

A firm, mineral-driven white, this is tightly meshed today, offering a subtle mix of crunchy white peach, spring blossom, Meyer lemon and melon flavors that unfurls on the long palate, gaining momentum through the stone- and chalk-tinged finish. A powerhouse. Best from 2020 through 2030. 467 cases made.–AN
