Tasting Notes: Though the balance is dry with nice lemon/lime acidity providing crispness the overall impression of this tasty Riesling from Chateau Des Charmes is of an intense, juicy wine with inviting aromas of stonefruit on the nose and concentrated flavours of ripe green apple, minerals and nectarine on the palate. The finish is long with lingering lemon and pear flavours. There is aging potential with this Riesling that may reward 2-3 years of extra bottle age, but feel no pressure to do so as the wine is tasting beautifully today. Drink now-2015+.
