Domaine Ostertag Riesling Muenchberg 2014 750ml

Domaine Ostertag Riesling Muenchberg

Wonderful notions of ivy leaves, citrus peel and conifer greet the nose. The aromatic impression leads onto a slender, dry and fluid palate that still seems tightly coiled and closed. But those subtle aromatic hints and a concentrated, stony palate promise future pleasure. This vintage will blossom into a perfumed marvel.

Muenchberg means the “mountain of the monks” and was first planted in the 12 century by the Cistercian monks. The total size of the Grand Cru is 17 Ha, we own 2,05 Ha of which 1,65 Ha are planted with Riesling.Muenchberg is one of the most unique Grand Crus of Alsace because of its very particular soil of redsandstone and volcanic sediments. The vineyard is based in the village of Nothalten. It is a wonderful south-facing amphitheatre of vines in a closed valley, in the Vosges foothills, protected at the west by a big mountain (Ungersberg – 901 m). The altitude ranges between 250 and 300 m which prevents from excessive heat and helps to keep all complexity in the wines. Like all the domaine’s vineyard the Riesling vines are farmed using biodynamic principles, and certified organic. We pay particular attention to manual tasks on the vines, because machines may be sometimes necessary but they will never have “man’s hand’s intelligent sensitivity”.For us, besides that, making a great wine will always depend on men and their commitment, their sensitivity and their passion. This is the key to succeed in Biodynamic viticulture.

The Muenchberg Riesling has uncomparable elegance and lenght, with a delicate and fleshy structure. In this wine, the volcano and the sandstone meet with perfect matching. The sensual and feminine sandstone makes the charming mouth entry, while the volcano, masculine and primal fire, stretches it on a fine and everlasting finish, nearly salty and full of texture, so typical of the Muenchberg.

Food pairing: every kind of delicate and refined cuisine with fish, shellfish, poultry and white meats.Aging potential: 20 years and more.
