Rolly Gassmann Pflaenzerreben Rorschwihr Riesling (750ml)
Marie-Therese and Louis Rolly Gassmann, along with their son Pierre, create wines that are legendary throughout France and Europe. In 1997 they added a biodynamic philosophy to their traditional ongoing approach of minimal interference with the vines, rigorous selection of grapes, and the most careful handling of both harvest and vinification. These techniques lead to the production of wines of the highest quality. Rolly-Gassmann has a unique style, whereas all wines have a certain velvety sweetness. It is only as wines are tasted and deemed appropriately aged that the wines are released to the market, sometimes as many as 20 years after bottling.
Pflaenzerreben Riesling is pure and sensual. The grapes for this wine share the same noble oolithic limestone as found in Corton-Charlemagne, conferring incredible balane and finesse. The 17 grams of RS are perfectly balanced by the 8.2 of total acidity, This is a sublime, totally balanced wine that will continue to age beautifully.
A harmonious white, very creamy and vivid, with mouthwatering layers of creamed apple and fleshy peach fruit, dried rosemary, honeycomb, candied lemon zest and ginger. A zesty streak of stone- and smoke-tinged minerality echoes on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
