Dopff & Irion Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg - Wineseeker

Dopff & Irion Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg

100% Riesling from the Grand Cru Schoenenbourg, on the slopes above the town of Riquewihr.

Generous nose of spiced pear and vanilla.  Off-dry, waxy and mouth-watering on the palate, exotic fruit and green apple rich long finish.

Reviews

2011 Vintage: 91 points from Wine Enthusiast

"Apple notes have a lifted ethereal quality. The palate comes in with beautifully poised lemon freshness that counters the just off-dry richness of the fruit flavors. This is balm-like in its apple-focused fruitiness and goes down very easily. Flavors linger."

2013 Vintage: 93 points from Wine Enthusiast

"Earth, dried lemon zest and crushed chamomile flowers send their ethereal notes from the glass. The palate comes in a rounded, almost emollient fashion that adds dried and baked apple and notions of mildly clear blossom honey. This lovely evolved Riesling is at a wonderful point in its development. Drink until 2028."

2018 Vintage: 90 points from Wine Enthusiast

"Crisp but ripe red apple plays subtly on the nose of this wine. The palate adds juiciness that enhances that feeling of ripe but fresh apple. Subtle concentration becomes apparent on the dry, vivid finish. Anne Krebiehl MW"
