2007 Riesling Grand Cru Kaefferkopf , René and Etienne Simonis

After a shift in responsibility in 1996, young Etienne Simnonis in Ammerschwihr manages the lovely vineyards Vogelgarten (Sigolsheim), Grand Cru Marckrain (Bennwihr) and Grand Cru Kaefferkopf with high ambitions; late harvest, low yields and ambitious vinification.

2007 Riesling Grand Cru Kaefferkopf has a big, fresh, up-front aroma, supported by relatively high levels of volatiles. The taste is firm and tight with brilliant minerality and the obnoxious loveliness of the terroir. A great success with outstanding potential from a classic terroir. Price: € 10.
