Domaine Lucas & Andre Rieffel, Brandluft Riesling, Alsace, 2012
100% Riesling, 13% Alcohol.
Bin end reduced to £9.50 from £15.50
Appearance: Clear pale lemon.
Nose: Intense characteristic Riesling nose: lemon and petrol.
Palate: Very slightly off dry, intense flavour, again lemon dominant. Very well balanced and given focus from piercing acidity. Finish long with high salinity and minerality.
Conclusions: I found this an evocative wine and incredible value for money. To date I have often been underwhelmed by Alsace but this really shines. Off-dry mineral heaven. [Again the family also enjoyed this.]
Score: 91/100 (DT)
