2014 Riesling Grand Cru “Muenchberg”

Domaine Ostertag

2014 Riesling Grand Cru “Muenchberg” Domaine Ostertag - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $60.00

Muenchberg is a glorious hidden mountain in northern Alsace, off the beaten track, with a gentle slope and mystical air about it (they don’t call it Monk’s Mountain for nothing). Nobody has worked more tirelessly to make the terroir famous than André Ostertag. He consistently provides fireworks in the bottle and an aging potential that rivals any dry Riesling in Alsace. It is a sure buy every year. Certainly you shouldn’t miss the 2014, one of the greatest Alsatian Riesling vintages in memory. If you want to smell and taste terroir, start here. –Dixon Brooke
