Riesling Andlau 2015 Marc Kreydenweiss review and tasting notes
The Riesling Andlau 2015 by Marc Kreydenweiss is a splendid biodynamic wine of great clarity: subtle, elegant in the aromatic phrasing that passes from delicate hints of lemon fruit, touching light spices and many mineral aromas, from rocks to classic hydrocarbons.
But what is most surprising is the naturalness of drinking: it flows driven by an acid vein, but with lightness and ease.
When a Riesling flows like thirst and rock, and its complexity is not perceived as difficulty in the mouth, but rather opens your mouth, when the sip is lengthened, then it is a great wine.
This is still young, a 2015 Riesling is still unbalanced towards its natural propensity for acidity, but this does not mean that it cannot be appreciated even in this phase of youthful vigor. Drink it now if you want an elegant and sharp wine or wait, put it in the cellar if you want all this matter to evolve, round up and develop its tertiary charge.
The bouquet of Riesling Andlau 2015 by Marc Kreydenweiss
Intense nose, but set at the finesse: the fruit is subtle with apricots and pears, followed by honey, acacia, rocks and citrus. The fruity part is still very fresh, the mineral part pungent and fascinating as befits a thick Riesling. Excellent persistence and variety.
What does Marc Kreydenweiss’ 2015 Riesling Andlau taste like?
In the mouth it is salty, fresh, of medium structure and fascinates with an irresistible gustatory progression. Very long savory momentum, floral finish of crystalline purity.
In conclusion, it is an excellent Riesling from Alsace, a solid, reliable bottle, with a very clear artisan cut, no forcing, but what one expects from a serious and respectful winemaker like Marc Kreydenweiss.
Price of the Riesling Andlau 2015 by Marc Kreydenweiss
