bright, sparkling golden yellow that thickens towards the rim.
 

Nose

The 2010 Riesling Schlossberg L'Épicentre presents a distinct minerality and complexity on the nose. Sweet citrus aromas combine with fresh mint and ginger and exotic hints of pineapple and mango. Floral hints of elderberry and acacia blossom skilfully round off the stimulating aroma spectrum.

 

Palate

The 2010 Riesling L'Épicentre is pure finesse, as it captivates with an intense sweetness in combination with a vibrant acidity. The salty minerality and the long finish testify to a true elixir!
 

Schlossberg Grand Cru

The Schlossberg is located north of Kaysersberg on a large granite rock of the Vosges Mountains. It is one of the most famous sites in Alsace and its history is documented back to the late Middle Ages. The vineyard is steep and has a pure southern exposure. It extends over an altitude of 230 to 400 meters. The soils are siliceous, sandy and rich in minerals. This special location in combination with the soil characteristics develops fruity and flowery wines with their own character and a special finesse. Albert Mann exclusively grows Riesling here, which is characterized by fruitiness, length and harmony and can be perfectly combined with sea food.
