A superb aged Riesling from one of the best sites in Northern Alsace, this 2006 Altenberg de Bergbieten has everything you can possibly expect from complex mature fine white wine. With subtle notes of petrol, honeyed citrus, white flowers and spices, the palate has an oily structure maintained by a vibrant acidity and a long honeyed but dry finish. A contemplation wine.
