The scent of ripe peach so typical of Riesling is easy to discover. Citrus notes and an elegant minerality also characterize the aroma. The acidity has a refreshing effect and completes the impression of a very classic Riesling. A wine with an excellent structure with good maturing potential.

A classic Riesling with an elegant minerality
Burg Layen is a village in the Nahe situated in the municipality of Rümmelsheim, in the Trollbach valley around 3 miles west of the Nahe river. The vineyards here cover around 114 hectares (282 acres), 77 percent of which is planted to white grape varieties. It grows a broad selection of grape varieties within its vineyards, but the most prestigious wines are made from Riesling.
We loved the wine together with monkfish medallions with porcini mushrooms and a Riesling sauce.
The Pieroth family’s estate, located in the very centre of the village of Burg Layen, is an inspiring place packed with history. The Pieroth family settled in the Nahe region back in 1675 and started to sell great wines at the beginning of the 20th century. At the confluence of the Rhine and the Nahe, in the magical triangle formed by the wine-producing regions of Rheingau, Rheinhessen and Nahe, various terroirs come together in a way unlike anywhere else in Germany. There are 180 varieties of soil in the tightest possible space here. This is unique in Germany and rare even in Europe.
