(this blend includes all 13 Alsace varieties, with the gewurztraminer component representing between 20% and 25%; Deiss considers Burg to be his longest ager following the Schoenenbourg) Good bright pale yellow. Pure, musky, highly complex nose melds citrus peel, flowers, brown spices, smoke and lichee. Very rich, dense and tactile yet fine-grained, with compelling depth of flavor, great verve and a captivating balance of sugars (35 g/l r.s., according to Deiss) and acids. The note of graphite in the mouth is due to the cold clay soil, says Deiss. Finishes with a superb whiplash of fruits and flowers and outstanding aromatic persistence. A great young example of this bottling. Deiss told me he's enjoying the 1995 right now.
