2005 Sylvaner Rosenberg Vielle Vignes, Barmès Buecher

Even if Sylvaner lacks a 'fingerprint' charcteristic, on the nose as well as on the palate, this historic variety does indeed give harmonous wines with a wide use.

2005 Sylvaner Rosenberg Vielle Vignes by Barmès Buecher in Wettolsheim is a biodynamic wine made by one of the stars of Alsace, and offers warm plums, raspberries, toffee and vanilla on the nose. The taste is medium full with a bit of barrique feeling, fresh and complex with some pear and a trace of bitterness, while the finish offers surprising length and superb acids. Impressive! Price: € 8.
