- 2016 Kientzler Riesling Kirchberg de Ribeauvillé - France, Alsace, Alsace Grand Cru (6/22/2020)
First time trying this bottling, and my first Kientzler in several years. Initially quite stern, and showing clearly dry. Over a few hours it opened up and filled out, revealing much greater palate richness, fruit definition (crisp peach, quince, apple), and just the barest hint of sweetness (not sure of the RS level, but the Kientzler wines skew to the drier end of the scale for modern Alsace). All the time I followed the wine it felt like a dinner wine, rather than an aperitif style. Nicely done, and I am glad to have a few more bottles.
