TOB exclusive import: Ruhlmann-Schutz Riesling Grand Cru Muenchberg 2018 from Alsace
White wine: Alsace Riesling Grand Cru Muenchberg 2018.
While the "Granit S" was a carnival of extrovert flavour, this Grand Cru is a wine of granite-like, channeled power. It is a young wine with a long life ahead of it and the aromatics at this early stage are very tight and lemony, with notes of lemon sorbet, ginger and lemongrass, with its massive Riesling aromatic potential only just starting to muscle into the flavour spectrum. The palate is crystalline perfection: tight, lemony and long, and this will cut through the richest foods, including spicy ones. Over time it will evolve new layers of flavour and intrigue. Riesling from the top shelf with a very bright future and yet so utterly delicious to drink now too.
