Tasting notes :2021 : "Intense golden colour. The nose has discreet aromas of wet stone and needs time. It feels rested, refined and confident! After some time, it opens up and finally displays beautiful fruity aromas (citrus, lime) mixed with a distinctly "granitic" influence of wet rock. The wine surpasses itself in the mouth. It is powerful but yet so well balanced. It combines the influence of the hot July sun with the cooler harvest conditions. The finish is precise and harmonious, and almost endless. The saline acidity covers the palate with a long-lasting mineral layer. This is a fantastic Brand!"

 

Description: "The Grand Cru Brand is located just above the village of Turckheim on a succession of small hills of biotite granite. This terroir dominates at the exit of the great valley of Munster, which means that despite its south, south-east exposure, the Brand benefits from the winds that blow down the valley, especially at the end of the evening during the temperature inversion phenomena between the summits and the plain of Alsace. The vines grow here in a very early climate, accentuated by the granite which heats up quickly and transfers the heat of the sun deep into the soil. It is, however, a geology that allows the roots to go deep into the soil, to levels where they find the clays and minerals resulting from the decomposition of the granite. These old vines were planted at a time when mass selection of plants was the norm. The bunches are therefore small and yields are naturally low, especially in 2019 when most of the Riesling was a bit milleranded. Because of the ripeness of the grapes in 2019, fermentation was particularly slow for this wine. We couldn't believe that the wine finally finished with a dry balance after 12 months of yeast activity."

 

Indice: Level of sweetness on the palate. Scale from 1 to 5.

1: analytically dry or tasting dry. 2: not analytically dry, but sugars are not evident on the palate. Some tasters may find a slight roundness in the finish. These wines will taste dry with some bottle ageing. 3: medium sweetness, higher in the youth of the wine, which will gradually fade with age. 4: Sweet wine. 5: Sweet wine, very close to a Vendange Tardive.
