Tasting Notes

The bright-colored 2018 Clos Ste Hune Riesling shows an intense and very concentrated bouquet of ripe fruits and crushed stones. Muschelkalk limestone dominates the palate, which reveals a powerful, dense and still quite bitter Riesling whose compact phenols still cage this dormant Riesling on a stony and saline bed. The finish, however is very potent and long. A bigger glass and more time probably would have helped the wine significantly, because I believe it's greater than this score is suggesting. 13.3% stated alcohol plus four grams per liter of residual sugar. Tasted at the domaine in May 2022.
