Domaine Barmes Buecher Leimental Riesling 2018
Posted on 02 October 2021.
Leimental vineyard grows 40 year old, organic vines that contribute to this wine. It’s next to Wettolsheim in Alsace. This feels dictionary definition Alsace riesling, with that extra weight and richness on hand.
Scents of frangipani, lime cordial, blackcurrants, candied almond. Flavours match this aroma wheel, slippery texture holds in a lot of flavour; it’s a riesling with some impact no doubt. Powers along and finishes long with a slightly chalky, chewy end. Lingering mushroomy and citrus flavours. Serious feeling riesling, very pent up, probably best drunk as a fully mature wine, so try that. Too much now? Maybe. But good wine.
