Domaine de la Ville de Colmar, Clos St-Jacques Riesling 2014

Clos St-Jacques is a 10.5 hectare vineyard protected from the wind by the surrounding hills on the outskirts of the town of Colmar, which explains why it is one of the driest places in France. Textbook Alsace Riesling with the nose opening to floral, white stone fruits and a touch of honey. The palate is dry, fresh and crisp with delicate floral tones balanced by ripe apple and honey. A complex and serious style that will pair nicely with white fish.
