dégustation Armand Heitz Riesling

Armand's tasting moment #3

Posted by Armand Heitz on

For this third tasting, I'm talking about one of my favorite grape varieties: Riesling. The Fröhlich family have been growing vines since the 1800s in the Nahe region of Germany. The estate now has 21 hectares of which 18 hectares are intended for the production of Riesling. Tim Frölich was voted winemaker of the year in 2010 by the Gault Millau guide.

I'm having a friend over at the last minute, I'm off to the cellar with a craving for Riesling 💥

I didn't regret my choice! 🥳

On the nose: the typical smells of Riesling are present, white flowers 🌸 peach 🍑

I find this fruitiness in the mouth, like biting into a fruit, the balance is perfect 🔝

This new tasting of Riesling once again confirms to me that I particularly appreciate this grape variety which, for me, is indicative of freshness and fruit.

A very interesting wine from a viticultural point of view because it expresses the expression of the terroir very well.

I'm thinking the following: too bad we can't plant Riesling in Burgundy, even if I think it probably wouldn't like it too much on our clay soils and limestone.

We'll meet very soon for another tasting.
