Lucien Albrecht Riesling Réserve 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit waxy on the nose with with floral and spice notes framing a modest core of dusty white fruit. Supple and round in the mouth, this is easy going with mineral flecked golden apple flavors that are supported by firm yet integrated acidity. There’s a touch of mintiness in the mouth and hints of red berry fruits as well all leading to a clean, dry finish. 85pts

Lighter nose of stone and petrol and lime aromas. Some hints of spring flowers. Dry and delicious. Always enjoy this wine. Nice spice and mineral notes with wonderful texture, good structure with flavors of pear, lychee and lime zest. 93 pts. 4/20/13
