Domaine Albert Mann, Riesling Furstentum Grand Cru 2007

Albert Mann Furstentum 2007 #1

Pale gold color.  Fresh, juicy and buoyant on the nose:  tropical and orchard fruit, hyacinth, baking spice.  This is confirmed on the slightly honeyed palate, of medium-full body and concentration: cantaloupe, fig, quince.  Substantial.  A little too botrytized for what we thought would be off-dry.  For a grand cru Furstentum we see very little of what we would recognize as ‘grand cru’ distinction: we found no ‘extra’ here.  In this context, a bit of a disappointment.  Now – 2017.
