Marc Kreydenweiss Riesling Kastelberg 2015 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96-98)

Tasted from the stainless-steel vat (after one year in foudre), the 2015 Grand Cru Kastelberg Riesling is rich and intense on the nose, showing butter, herbal and pencil aromas for the moment. The attack on the palate is fresh and vibrant, revealing a delicate, though piquant, acidity along with great purity and lingering salinity. The wine develops great finesse and concentration and its tension and precision in the very long, intense and salty finish is mind-blowing. The tannins are firm, but perfectly polymerised. I tasted the wine again the next day when it started like a Chenin Blanc from the Anjou with concentrated quince and pear aromas on the nose. Rich, elegant and juicy, the wine again showed fine tannins and a long and intense finish with salt, orange and kumquat flavors. The 2015 might be on its way to becoming a legendary Kastelberg, but it is still a bit cloudy and can only be examined like a baby on ultrasound. However, first signs indicate this could become a giant one day, not in terms of bigness, but in terms of precision, concentration, finesse and mineral expression. The wine will be bottled with just 3 milligrams of SO2.
