Allemagne - Mosel Riesling Trocken

Domaine Pauly 2020

€620 Flacon de 10cl

This intensely aromatic wine showing liveliness and precision is from Axel Pauly in Germany’s Mosel. The nose is clearly defined and driven by very nice freshness thanks to fresh pear and lemony citrus notes. Its floral side then develops with subtle hints of honeysuckle and peony. On the palate, this is a dry and lively wine with beautiful minerality and a saline touch.

Winemaker

Axel Pauly

The Mosel is Germany’s oldest winemaking region and its winemakers are quite rightly considered as the world’s experts of Riesling. Domaine Pauly is located in Lieser, a little upstream of Bernkastle, along the Moselle river. It is a typical Mosel, family-run estate with 5.5 hectares of vines. The father, Rudolf Pauly, produced some 60 vintages in his time, before his son Axel took over the estate in 2004. After studying in Geisenheim, Alex acquired a range of experience around the world, before returning to his family homeland. Since his arrival, the style of the wines has evolved towards more freshness and delicacy of fruit.
