About this winery

Olivier Humbrecht is one of the world's most renowned winegrowers. He is a Master of Wine and has been described by Robert Parker as the greatest white winemaker on earth.

Notes about product

There is no doubt that this wine will close up slightly in the months following the bottling. You will then have to be patient and give it time to open up. The 2020 Riesling Brand Grand Cru is dense and strict. It embodies the verticality expected of such a granitic terroir and has a great aging potential.

Tasting notes

Light gold yellow colour. The nose is still on its reserve but allows for glimpses, beautiful aromas of fruit, ripe citrus, wet stone and spices (thyme). Rich, dense, intense, it vigorously envelops the palate. The mouth becomes strict on the finish with a sapid mineral mouthfeel.

Be prepared to be amazed! Staggering nose of ripe pineapple, Amalfi lemon, honeysuckle and mystery. Enormously powerful and concentrated with breathtaking drive, this heads off into space like a star ship. Such razor-sharp mineral acidity, yet also staggering, textural complexity at the incredibly long finish with its cornucopia of citrusy aromas. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
