2001 Riesling Grand Cru Altenberg de Wolxheim, Laurent Vogt

Wolxheim is a calm and charming viticultural village, situated beneath the Madonna statue on top of Altenberg and Horn. Here, you have many possibilities to find splendid Riesling that need many years of ageing to show its potential.

2001 Riesling Grand Cru Altenberg de Wolxheim has a mature aroma of acacia, lime, some red currant and petrol. The taste offers liquerice, minerality and the fullflavoured fruit that comes with maturity. A splendid example of the small miracles offered by the family domaines of Alsace. Price: € 7.20.
