Bruno Sorg 2007 Riesling

December 30, 2009

This Riesling did impress me already when I tested it at the Domaine a few weeks ago but could not really remember the details. It’s the only bottle I had but decided not to wait and reasses it. This is serious, serious value for money.

Pale, brilliant gold in the glass. Honeyed, full and round on the nose, with remarkable depth and thickness of aromas. On deeper smells you get that sort of waxy tightness which gives the nose some kind of intriguing reticence. Packed with sweet candied lemon aroma and a nervous dried fruit undercurrent. No disappointment on the palate where the body and weight you expect is retained in an almost viscous texture. Good correspondence to the nose. Dry and concentrated, all elements are kept revolving n the mouth through a vivacious, striking lemony acidity, typical of the good Riesling. At EUR 6.10, this is to be bought in cases.
