Pierre Sparr Schoenenbourg Grand Cru Riesling is a nice golden color. Very expressive and complex nose. Large range of fruity and floral notes, elegant and full of promise. Citrus fruits and white flowers and a hint of minerality are revealing the limestone soil of this wonderful terroir. On the palate, the fresh structure of the Riesling is balanced by its body, dense and straight. A hint of sweetness reinforces this full-bodied and full-flavored side typical for a Grand Cru.
The nose is intense with grapefruit and guava, a surprising and delightful combination. On the palate, too, this wine's fruit characteristics are forward and lively. Grapefruit gummy candy dances across the tongue. On the finish, a savory hint of minerality and dry thyme comes into the picture, making for a long, eminently food-friendly finish.
