From pink, decomposed granite soils, the 2017 Alsace Grand Cru Brand Riesling opens beautifully aromatic, with almost tropical fruit aromas (pineapples). Very pure and flinty (gunflint), this is a full-bodied, generously lush and piquant but structured and very persistent Brand. The tannins are soft and fine, and the acidity is lively and salty. Very long and intense. A great Brand! Tasted from the cask in October 2018.
