Cuvée Frédéric Emile Alsace Riesling 2002

really fine riesling—apples, pineapple, hints of apricot, menthol, petrol, a musky hint, all lifted and taut, very long and clean, a long future ahead, developing very well. Love this bottling. 90% of the quality of Clos Ste. Hune for 20% of the price. — 15 hours ago

Agreed. Love CSH but the price difference in it and CFE isn’t as big a difference as the price is.

Strangenberg Pinot Noir 2018

Drank over 2 days, nice fruit, spices and pepper notes on the nose and palate, fresh, savoury and medium to light intensity but with fine grained tannins, very nice and a good QPR. 89-90

Bu sur deux jours, du fruit, des épices et du poivre au nez comme en bouche, une bouche assez souple, savoureuse, très fraiche et des tannins aux grains fins d’intensité moyenne, belle découverte. 89-90

Sommerberg Alsace Grand Cru Riesling

Developing nicely after my last bottle 2 years ago. Golden Delicious apple fruit, hint of peach, and subtle petrolly minerality. Dry and flavorful, it’s got a pronounced but not unpleasant bitter component that kicks in midway through the palate. Decent acids. — 14 days ago

Every time I taste this, it surprises in a positive sense. Amazing Crémant from Alsace. 132 months on yeast yielding great freshness and complexity — 14 days ago

Domaine Bechtold

Engelberg Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2017

Fantastic Grand Cru offering esp considering the price. something slightly reductive that blew off leaving a little muscadine on entry and delish bitter orchard fruit on the palate. balancing acidity, lavish mouthfeel. So poundable. — 9 days ago

This is the Paar 50% pinot blanc and 50% auxerrois. @Delectable Wine the back label is on my previous upload. A bit on the bigger palate side. Tasty. — 5 days ago

Domaine Weinbach

Cuvée Ste. Catherine Alsace Grand Cru Schlossberg Riesling 2009

Similar notes to 65 weeks ago when I had the last one. A colour of pale to mid Gold. Delicate white florals initially with a touch of petro-chemical. Aromas of sweet pea (flower) and orange peel - citrus in general. As the wine developed, aromas of honeysuckle. On the palate notes of Quince with a sweetish honeyed end. One of the 1001 Wines from one of the world’s great Riesling vineyards which was originally planted and tended by monks in the 1500s. — 12 days ago
