Tasting Notes

This Ruppertsberg site could easily justify a “GG” bottling, as other estates have indeed done. It’s the juicy grande dame among the 1er Crus, very close to the “GGs” in stature and in that ineffable sense of Important Land; a warm basket of yellow fruits and a solid yet texturally complex finish. No need to work to “get” this wine; it’s overtly dee-lish! — Terry Theise
