Bergheim Alsace Gewürztraminer 2017

An excellent well rounded wine, had it with cod and bok choi. Worked very well. Would absolutely recomed this wine and it does not hurt that it is organic. — 12 days ago

Altenberg de Bergheim Alsace grand cru Gewürztraminer 2015

Yeah, what a wine. Full ripe tropical fruits, creamy vanilla with a light hint of caramel sweetness. Orange zest bitters. Quite sweet but just enough citrus sour to prevent it from becoming too thick. Mached excellent with the spicy lintal coconut dal for diner. But standalone it is even better. — 10 months ago

Reserve Alsace Pinot Blanc 2017

Nasty Women of the East Bay do Alsace. This wine, like so many from the region , overdelivers: jasmine, citrus, chalk with grapefruit pith and white pepper on the finish. Apparently a blend of 95% Auxerrois and 5% Pinot Blanc qualifies as a Pinot Blanc?!? The Alsatians rank up there with the Italians for confusing labeling conventions. Enjoyed. — 2 years ago

Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1983

I got handed this to open and the comment was that most likely it was gone
It was a gift, who knows how kept
However these are the best surprises
Never had a Grand Echezeaux this good and aged. Only Rene Engel left me a better memory

Praelatenberg de Kintzheim Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2014

Medium gold in color, the honeyed nose shows apricot, minerally/earthy “petrol” notes, and almost a Semillon-like lanolin note. Rich in the mouth and off-dry (like a German Feinherb), it’s got deep fruit and earth flavors and is quite full-bodied (14%), with a little alcohol showing at the tail end of the finish. Not a delicate-styled Riesling by any stretch. It’s the kind of Riesling that will go better with white meats than anything from river or sea. — 6 months ago

@David L @Dawn E. @Severn Goodwin They’re Bormioli InAlto I bought several years ago (at Marshall’s of all places, I think). I love how they concentrate the nose of a wide range of wines. Unfortunately I’m down to my last 2, which my wife and I use when it’s just us. I’m not sure they’re even produced anymore. I should check (but my wife says we have too many wine glasses already!).
