My first wine in almost three weeks. There will be a lot more following on today.
Riesling Grand Cru Pfersigberg 2003
Domaine Bruno Sorg
A ripe, citrus, peachy nose, lots of fruit here. There is a lot of creamy minerality, too, which is just lovely. The palate has a real richness of fruit, which is slightly spicy. There is serious vineyard character here. The acidity is finely balanced, which is nice for a 2003 wine. This wine strikes me as a titillating little beauty which should charm the most jaded of Alsace critics. Lovely now but will age another five years.
