The Clos St. Landelin Grand Cru is one of the great viticultural sites for the expressiveness and exotic power of Alsace's noble varieties. This monopole of the Domaine is farmed biodynamically allowing the vineyard to produce grapes which are concentrated and rich with beautifully mineral acidities.
"Lime, lemon and bergamot zest tantalize on the nose with their shimmering nuances of green and yellow freshness. The palate adds a textured backdrop that has something of citrus pith, providing a layer against which this vivid zestiness can play out. There is substance and depth and wonderful purity. The finish is dry and those flashes of aromatic citrus peel continue throughout. Wonderful. Drink now through 2035." 97 points (2016 vintage), Wine Enthusiast
"The heady aromatic scent of fresh tangerine peel takes turns with the refreshing perfume of green Seville oranges. The palate takes these enticing aromas and bundles them into one arrow-like force of concentrated freshness. This is a high-wire act of piercing brightness and layered citrus aroma. This is like a self-generating well of freshness that convinces with its luminosity, raciness and rapier-like purity of citrus flavors. Everything is heightened: Fruit, dryness, freshness and vibrant verve. It is tempting but it would be a shame to drink this now. Keep this genie in its bottle for a while longer, if only to see what fascinating direction it takes. This is wondrous." (2015 vintage) 97 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, January 2017
