It covers an area of 53.4 ha on a watery subsoil of Keuper, marl, dolomite and gypsum, rich in humus and covered with fine layers of quaternary gravel, Vosges sandstone and shell limestone, as well as marl limestone. The 2017 Schoenenbourg Riesling Grand Cru is elegant and mineral, with a little contact with oxygen, apple peel and citrus emerge alongside the stony notes and a hint of ripeness.

Info about the situation

Located to the north of Riquewihr, the vineyard runs along the rather steep southern and south-eastern flanks of the Schoenenbourg hill at an altitude of 265 to 380 metres. It covers an area of 53.4 hectares on a watery subsoil of Keuper, marl, dolomite and gypsum, rich in humus and covered with fine layers of quaternary gravel, Vosges sandstone and shell limestone, and marl limestone.

Color

Light golden yellow.

Nose

The 2017 Schoenenbourg Riesling Grand Cru is elegant and mineral, with a little contact with oxygen, apple peel and citrus emerge alongside the stony notes and a hint of ripeness. After a longer opening, it is notes of vineyard peach, apple compote, fragrant flowers and honey that characterize its fragrance.

Palate

The palate is supple and juicy, the fruit youthfully coated with fine sweetness and buffered by minerality and subtle tannin. Just here you can see that it is still in its infancy and is equipped with a wonderful development and maturation potential. The impatient connoisseur can enjoy it already now after sufficient aeration to dishes with fruity and spicy touches. Those who have leisure and time buy 2016 at the moment and put 2017 in the cellar.
