($42) Pale yellow-gold. Aromatic, muscat-like nose melds honeydew, chlorophyll, mint and flowers. Supple, clean and easygoing, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the stone fruit flavors. This is a bit higher in residual sugar and acidity than the 2004. In a distinctly round style, finishing with lush flavors of peach and spices.

Classic, soaring Riesling aromatics evocative of candied apple, flowers, crushed rocks, watermelon peel and hints of quince emerge in this infant Turckheim bottling. The palate is coated in layers of rich, sweet fruit, coated in a generous texture that turns crisp and steely on the finish. While Olivier makes Riesling that is about as alcoholic as the varietal gets (this one clocks in over 13%), they still dazzle w/ their finesse, complexity and lithe balance.
