Domaine Mittnacht Frères Grand Cru Riesling Rosacker 2019

Alsace, FranceFounded in 1958, Domaine Mittnacht is a family-run estate led by Christophe and Yuka Mittnacht, with vineyards located around the town of Hunawihr. Christophe was an early pioneer of the biodynamic movement, and the domaine was officially certified biodynamic in 1999, one of the first in Alsace. GC Riesling Rosacker comes from 40+ year old vines, fermented in large older oak. The treatment is felt from first whiff, with a gentle lees decked, expansive nose that carries onto the medium weight palate. Pear skin and flesh, flax, is coated with lees, and kissed with lemon verbena, drawing this out to a stony finish. A subtle GC, but worthwhile listening to.
