What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
In 2015, Schoech acquired .2 hectares of Riesling in this coveted Grand Cru located in Kientzheim, in the heart of the Valley of Kaysersberg. The soil composition of Furstentum is essentially limestone based, instead of the granitic rock, for example, found in the Grand Cru Kaefferkopf. The vineyard of Furstentum is south facing with superb exposure to the sun and the vines sit on a steep slope with a 37% angle that offers excellent drainage. Forceful but elegant and intensely aromatic, the Furstentum is broad on the palate, with a clean citrus toned minerality providing a searingly dry and persistent finish – a wonderful and particularly age worthy companion to an already impressive duo of Rieslings produced at the Domaine Schoech.
