Mambourg 2015 Marcel Deiss
€ 72,48 (in Vat)
Reflecting the warm and dry vintage as well as the very hot vineyard, the 2015 Grand Cru Mambourg offers a clear, deep and aromatic bouquet with concentrated lemon aromas along with smoky flavors of crushed stones. Pure, fresh, super lush and ripe on the palate but still precise, finessed and elegant, this is a rich, intense and very aromatic Mambourg with a remarkably fine structure and huge aging potential. This is a fascinating assemblage of power and purity, of ripeness and mineral finesse, concentration and transparency, structure and elegance. The 2015 is simply flowing over the palate and leaves nothing but salty minerals and the association of perfectly ripe fruits on your mind. Although it drinks very well already today (for fruit wine lovers), this Mambourg will gain complexity over the years if not decades. A great Mambourg that is not yet in the market. Deiss's Mambourg was planted with 12,000 vines per hectare, and the leaf wall is just one meter high instead of the more common 1.80 meters. The objective in this very warm cru is to have low yields with just 14% of potential alcohol but real (phenolic) maturity and good acidity.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
This is a unique wine where opposites meet! On the nose, it is deep and complex thanks to the many delicate spicy notes. But the caramelized ripe-pear character makes it immediately attractive. It is almost savagely dry on the palate, accentuating the wine's massive minerality and fundamental acidity. The finish is enormously fresh but dark and dangerous. Drink or hold. A complex field blend made from organically grown grapes.
