More Gutedel – this time going by its synonym Chasselas.
Blankenhorn, Chasselas ‘Le Clocher’ trocken 2017, Schliengen/VDP.Ortswein, Baden
Deep lemon in appearance. An initial whiff of apple strudel, followed by green apple and pear. Very intense aromas emerge: vanilla and lactose-like notes of cheese, along with roasted notes, citrus, white chocolate, single-malt peat and wet stone. More pear, peat and vanilla on a palate of pronounced intensity. Medium acidity with a long, silky finish that coats the mouth. This is a serious wine that is still rather young, so it is a pity I only have one other bottle left.
