Alsace Tradition Pinot Noir 2018

Fresh and straight expression of « bio » Pinot Noir. Terroir and small red fruits well ahead (cranberry, redcurrant), relatively round and homogeneous for an Alsatian wine, with a slight specific mineral tension. serve at 10-12 degrees. Very gourmet, as an aperitif, a meal combining charcuterie and / or cheese. — 16 days ago

Eichberg Grand Cru Riesling 1997

At 23 years of age, this wine sings with a voice of tropical notes, yet never strays too far into the realm of cloyingly annoying thanks to high notes of tongue lashing acidity. Absolutely gorgeous. Lengthier than the administration of tRump and finishing with so much more grace. — 10 days ago

Muscat Bollenberg Grand Cru 2016

Floral, aromas suggest just a tad of sweetness, flavors a light, lively, round and simply beautiful, medium-long finish, great Alsatian Muscat!! BTW, Bollenberg is NOT a Grand Cru to my knowledge, it would certainly say so on the label if it was!! — 6 days ago

Bestheim

Exception Pinot Gris 2014

Deep gold. Inviting nose of lemon curd and honey. Full-bodied dry palate echoes the nose adding quince, white pepper notes, and white flowers. Medium plus acidity. This is not your father’s Pinot Gris. Barrel fermented and complex, this PG will support a wide range of fall and winter fare from pasta carbonara and casseroles to roasted poultry and roots. Drink now through 2029. Maybe longer. — 2 days ago

Rat Kamm Le Gris Maceration Nature Pinot Gris 2019

Exciting and unexpected color! Like drinking a great sour beer, minus a bit of the effervescence, plus some of that nuanced natty wine palate I love so much. Leather and parm balanced out with lots of red fruit 🍓🍒🧀 — 9 days ago

Collines de Granit Alsace Gewürztraminer 2016

whiplash tangerine streak at first.....the tropical/lychee/rosewater thing of course....it leans a little oily, which may be the years on its side speaking, and there’s the faintest bit of something that falls between rubber and mint. a fleeting rose perfume comes back, then some grapefruit rind. then this weird thing that’s like baby aspirin rubbed into wet wood. plucky. — 8 days ago

Resling Bollenberg 2016

Classic petrol/diesel Riesling aromas, youthful, super fresh young Riesling (I clearly opened this about 10 years too early — LOL), really dry Riesling, complex, balanced, needs significant aging!! — 6 days ago
