White wine. Alsace, France. Biodynamic. 100% Sylvaner. "The 2016 Sylvaner Bollenberg is from a parcel bought in 2013 that was immediately converted to biodynamic farming. After the excellent 2014 (which should be enjoyed now), the 2016 was yielded like a grand cru with just 35 hectoliters per hectare and aged in a large foudre for two years. The wine opens with a delicate nose of white fruits and some flinty notes. Delicate and pure on the palate, this is an elegant, refined and structured Sylvaner with a playful finish and clear, elegant fruit. Zusslin is one of the rare estates in Alsace that is still producing ambitious Sylvaners with class and style. The wine is still a bit phenolic, but this should oxidize with aeration." — 93 Points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate #251 (October 2020)
