Tasting Notes

The 2010 Belzbrunnen Grand Cru from Domaine Dirler-Cadé has a distinctive aromatic profile with rich and ripe fruits coming to mind together with a distinctive mineral character.

On the nose I find white peach, yellow apple, pear, lime meringue, honeysuckle, crushed rock, gunflint.

This complex bouquet is then confirmed on palate.

Medium body. Ample in the mouth.

Medium long+ finish.

This is a beautiful bottle with great aging potential!

Riesling

White grape variety

Riesling is a white grape variety native to the Rhine Valley. Riesling is a flowery, almost perfumed grape variety with high acidity and flowery, almost perfumed aromas. It’s used to make white wines that are dry, semi-sweet, sweet, and sparkling. Riesling wines are almost never oaked and are normally varietally pure. Riesling was the world’s 20th most planted variety in 2004, with 48,700 hectares, but it is typically included in the “top three” white wine varieties, alongside Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc, in terms of value for quality wines. Riesling is a terroir-expressive variety, which means that the character of Riesling wines is strongly influenced by the wine’s roots.
