You should better not underrate finally warm vintages such as 2009 or 2011 at Leon Beyer, in particular not the 2011 Riesling Cuvée des Comtes d’Eguisheim, which is sourced from deeper marl soils in the Grand Cru Pfersigberg (whereas the Riesling Les Ecaillers comes from the very calcareous parts). There are floral flavors on the clear and subtle, very well balanced and elegant nose, where nothing stands out but all is beautifully melded and extremely vinous. The attack on the palate is very elegant and charming, but less powerful and firm than expected. The 2011 is dense and fruity, beautifully balanced, very elegant, and reveals a long and intense finish. This wine won't be in the market before 2018 or even 2019, but its worth a reservation.
Medium yellow. Deep but reticent aromas of smoke, stone fruits and quinine, with a suggestion of talc emerging with air. Densely packed and vibrant, with sharply delineated flavors of citrus peel, crushed stone and oyster shell. Gives a drier, more austere impression than the 2009, but there's plenty of flavor intensity here-and more energy. An exotic suggestion of papaya appeared with some aeration. Very long on the back end.
