Domaine Brand & Fils - Ergersheim, Alsace
100% Riesling - 13.5% abv
Same vineyard, same grape, different years. This stunning Riesling Solera is a blend of 2017, 2018 and 2019 all in one bottle.
2017/18 were blended together for one year and then 75% of the foudre (2,000 litres) were bottled. This created space in the barrel and so 2019 was added. For another year all three vintages hung out in the foudre together until finally bottling this masterpiece.
There is a hint of vanilla on the nose which can also be found on the palate, along with liquorice, subtle raspberries and an oxidative finish. Mouthfeel is creamy.
Recommend decanting beforehand. Tastes great with roast chicken and gravy ;)
