  • Jancis Robinson | Rating: 18

    Pale greenish. (Only half as much botrytis in this vineyard as for Cuv?e Fr?d?ric Emile this year.) Very pure fruit. Concentrated and pleasing already on the nose though with a hint of austerity. Grainy, textured, deep on the palate. Slightly toasty character. Massive extract. Bodes well.

    Seductive. More classical in style, this Riesling offers intense peach, apple and pine forest aromas and flavors matched to a steely, dry profile. It's understated, yet leaves more to the imagination, teasing with its nuances and sophisticated charms. 700 cases made.

    The 1998 Riesling Clos St. Hune is a spectacular wine. It displays a magnificent aromatic purity, with complex herbal, mineral, and crisp pear scents. Medium to full-bodied, and awesomely broad, powerful, and harmonious, this tightly-wound, slate, chalk, lemon-lime, quartz, and cocoa powder-flavored wine is silky-textured and breathtakingly intense. It should be at its peak of maturity between 2006 and 2015+.

    Very complex nose melds lime, mint, powdered stone, licorice and a light petrol note. Dense, rich, chewy and firm; supple and ripe but solidly structured for aging. Finishes very long and minerally. Loads of potential. (But the '97 Clos Ste. Hune, a wine of compelling minerality, is even richer and more layered; I'll stick with my original score of 94(+?) for the earlier wine, which I retasted in May alongside the '98.)
