Chapoutier Schieferkopf Riesling 2014
Aromatic and vibrant. Palate of citrus with salty minerality.
Tasting Notes: Citrus aromas with notes of spice & pineapple. There's a deep core of minerality here in this vibrant French white wine with a laser like focus and lime lift through the mid-palate, salty notes on the finish - very aromatic. Alsace has always held a special place in Michel Chapoutier's heart, particularly because of the mineral subtlety of wines from the region. Schieferkopf is a joint-venture between Michel Chapoutier and a group of wine-loving friends, based around a 5 hectare Domaine in Bernardvill̩ where unique blueschist soil gives poise and austerity to the wines.
In common with all Chapoutier estates, the domaine is managed under organic and bio-dynamic principles in order to best express this terrior.
