Paul Blanck Schlossberg Grand Cru Alsace Riesling 2011

Schlossberg is an 80 hectare grand cru in Alsace that is situated eight kilometres from Colmar, overlooking the Weiss Valley.  The Vins Alsace website actually has a lot of further information, including some very cool interactive maps that highlight the region’s stunning beauty.  You can find it here.  This wine from Paul Blanck is a very good wine.  A yellow gold in colour, it has aromas of lemon and touch of honey.  The palate is rich and mostly dry, with flavours reminding of lemon, stones and tropical fruit, supplemented by fresh acidity and long length on palate.  Ready to drink now, this wine can be approached over the next decade or more.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: not recorded. Price: $60. Website: www.blanck.com/en/
