Domaine Valentin Zusslin Riesling Le Schild 2020

Alsace, FranceEstablished in 1691 by M. Jodocus Cisle (former name of Zusslin), Domaine Valentin Zusslin is now run by two generations of the Zusslin family. The winery is based in Orschwihr, south of Colmar, and the vines are planted on the slopes of the Bollenberg, Clos Liebenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg. Since 1997, the estate has been run biodynamically. Le Schild is their newest plot. Tight and nervy, with pear skin, green apple, licks of brown butter, and kisses of lime, this races along the slight palate, with a fine layer of lees to balance the bone dry palate. Lovely fine and nimble energy here.Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
