Selbach-Oster Riesling Brut 2014

Mosel, GermanyJohannes Selbach loves Champagne, so it is no surprise he has tried to emulate the precision and complexity of méthode champenoise in his riesling sekt brut. It rested on tirage between 18-24 months. It’s beginning to show some age in the right way, with some of the brightest notes yielding to older, more complex esters, still floral but less exuberant. Nectarines and apricots with lime leaf mark the palate of a fizz you might say is moving into aged gout Anglais style. It was a perfect start for Dim Sum lunch.
