Schoenenbourg er et mesterstykke i balance: Fedme, hvid pære og syltet fersken i enestående balance med en nærmest salt mineralitet. Ofte begynder Jean-Cristophe først høsten i slutningen af oktober! Anmeldelserne taler deres tydelige sprog – det er verdensklasse Riesling det her!!

Jean-Cristophe Bott, der overtog Bott-Geyl i 1993 som kun 20 årig, er en alsacisk cowboy, der tager chancer, høster sent og løber risici, hvor andre spiller mere sikkert spil. Han har siden overtagelsen høstet stor ros og anerkendelse, og anses for at være und, vild og nyskabende i sin tilgang til vin. I sin tid som vinmager har Jean-Cristophe blandt andet opnået at få 98 point fra Robert parker! Certificeret økologisk og biodynamisk fremstilling siden 2002, ligesom mentoren Zind-Humbrecht og det kan smages i vinenes utrolige intensitet. Altid inciterende nerve, markant personlighed og en fedme og fylde, der er balanceret af mineralitet, kridt og krydderi. Huset hører hjemme i Beblenheim ikke langt fra Colmar og råder over 14 ha vinmarker, heraf 4 Premier Cru (lieux-dits) og 3 Grand Cru, fordelt på mere end 75 små lodder i 7 kommuner. Jean-Cristophes enorme engagement og evne til at tænke nyt fx i den stedvise anvendelse af barriques og hans evne til at koble stor modenhed med fornem balance gør ham til et stjernenavn i dagens Alsace.

Pungent and smooth. Much suaver than most of its peers. Positively silky texture! Slighlty alcoholic on the end. Big and bold.

Bright golden-tinged yellow. Deep aromas of mirabelle, pear, minerals and white flowers on the captivating nose. Juicy, bright and dense, displaying a multilayered quality to the complex, concentrated mouthfeel and flavors of stone fruit and minerals. Finishes very long with a bright lemony zing. A less massive Schoenenbourg than usual (it couldn’t be otherwise in a vintage like 2014) but exceptionally refined. Tasting this right after the Kronenbourg is illuminating, as the grand cru’s class and greater depth are obvious. Bott-Geyl owns three very steep parcels located in the heart of the cru, its best part.

The heady scent of grapefruit and tangelo peel immediately add savoriness to the crisp green-apple fruit that is evident on the nose. But there are also richer hints of honey and yellow apple. The palate remains taut, slender and linear but that tangelo spice is boosted by enticing herbal notes of yarrow and a dollop of yeast. This is an aromatic marvel. The finish is dry and intense. This will keep your interest for years. Drink now through 2035.

The 2014 Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg has a deep, complex and flinty/smoky bouquet with tropical fruit aromas like pineapples. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with a beautiful, dense and aromatic fruit (thanks to botrytis), this Schoenenbourg has an excitingly long, pure and salty finish; there is a firm and tannic grip with gorgeous fruit intensity in the aftertaste. This is great and elegant Riesling with an ageing potential of roughly 20 years, probably more.

Precise and dark fruited, accurate and detailed, showing great depth and an enormous and powerful finish. This will unwind only slowly.
