Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) Rated by many judges as the greatest Alsace Riesling of all, Clos Sainte Hune comes from an exceptional, 1.3 hectare plot near Hunawih. Dry yet succulent, of phenomenal complexity, this wine develops an extra-ordinary aftertaste of minerals after a few years in bottle. Of great longevity and very rare (production rarely exceeds 7000 bottles), Clos Sainte Hune takes at least seven years to reach its peak.

    (2001 Vintage) A deep, bright gold, with just a suggestion of green. An open nose; ripe apple/peach aroma is quite distinctly Riesling in character, with good freshness, sappy concentration and focus, and an elegant style. Very good indeed! The palate also shows elegance, with plenty of apple/peach flavor, plump and fleshy juiciness, and good mineral. Delicious! Good body, some richness, balanced and smooth, dry, with modest-good acidity.
