Tasting Notes

This as always is convincing, even domineering, and certainly generous and alpha, the “Les Clos” of the GGs. The Deidesheim site is a “chalk-oven” and gives the most overt and in-your-face among the Crus—the easiest to “get” and the most clearly impressive. Yet it is also complex and ages superbly. Perhaps the best “restaurant-wine” as it’s all over you and not at all subtle. – Terry Theise
