2000 Riesling Grand Cru Hengst , Josmeyer

In the 2008 edition of Les Meilleurs Vin de France, The Best Wines of France, the Revue du Vin de France awards two out of three stars to Josmeyer in Wintzenheim. Other domaines on this level are Lynch-Bages, Le Pin and Selosse. Not a bad company....

2000 Riesling Grand Cru Hengst has a complex, powerful aroma of honey, some petrol, honey, spring flowers and red grapefruit. The taste has a huge volume, layers of layers of sophisticated fruit, traces of botrytis and eternal finish. World class. Unforgettable. Perfect. Price: € 26.
