Jean luc Mader, Rosacker Grand Cru Riesling 2016 from Alsace
2016 is such a phenomenal year for French wine: so much flavour wrought in riveting elegance. Great to see this Grand Cru under screw cap now, which really helps to preserve the fundamental liveliness of a year like 2016. A great and complex wine aromatically but it’s the palate that leaves you gasping for more, its pulsating citrus-sweet palate an electric shock to the senses. Under screw cap I’m guessing this has 30 years or more cellar potential. If only Grand Cru white Burgundy would follow suit!
Closure: screw cap. Drink: Now to 2045
The 2015 of this wine (under cork) was rated 4.5 on Vivino. There are currently less than ten reviews of the 2016 on Vivino so its current score isn't statistically significant.
