  • Tasting Notes


From a red marl-gravel above Ribeauville, the 2007 Gruenspiel is another of what Deiss calls his “white red wines,” and, indeed, there the blend is one third each Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling. Green tea, red currant jelly, and overtly chalky and alkaline mineral suggestions on the nose all remind me a bit of a top-notch Chassagne Morgeot. An exchange of peach, musk melon, red currant, and lemon underlain by chalk on a dense palate offers energy and impressive grip, and this finishes with its sweetness restrained by strong, almost ineffable minerality and red wine-like though fine tannin. It should be tremendously fascinating to follow over at least the next 10-12 years, and absolutely devilish to present to the unsuspecting wine sophisticate blind.
