DOMAINE FRICK PIERRE 2008 FRICK PIERRE RIESLING VORBOURG "Being among the recalcitrant among his wines of this vintage, Frick’s 2008 Riesling Vorbourg only last August reached the point where he felt comfortable to bottle it, dry. It presents a mouthful of minerals – chalk, alkali, salt – such as one seldom encounters, even in Riesling. At the same time, though, long lees contact, malo-lactic transformation, and low sulfur have combined to render it surprisingly soft and creamy. That noted, there is an abundance of fresh, juicy apple and peach fruit, delightfully mingled with pistachio and the aforementioned litany of mineral notes, leading to a long, lip-smacking finish. This distinctively delicious Riesling will be most interesting to follow, though I hesitate to speculate for how many years, as it is so unlike any other that I can recall."
