Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Clos Jebsal Vendange Tardive Turckheim Pinot Gris 2012

Exquisite and unforgettable. Paired with gazpacho, prawns and foie gras. The salty paired with this off dry white is incredible. Savoriness balanced with honeysuckle and apricot. Sweetness with edge. — 10 days ago

Crisp and not too sweet for a Riesling. Lovely hint of honey and fruit. — a month ago

Agathe Bursin

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

Brand Alsace Grand Cru Pinot Gris 2002

Crazy rich, oily, fully texture. Pear, apple, lemon, honey, mineral notes last for minutes. Crazy good, drinking amazing after 19 years — 13 days ago

Albert Boxler

Grand Cru Brand Riesling 2017

Mid yellow, strong and powerful on the powerful with impressive Le goth on the honey, guava and lime palate. This is proper Riesling that is thankfully drinking well now but I’d expect to develop beautifully for many years to come. First Boxler wine for me and I’ll be buying more on this evidence. Good comparison to Germany’s GGs. — a month 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. — 8 days ago

Turckheim Gewürztraminer 1884

Was much drier than expected based on the 94 Turkheim Rieslings I’ve had. But still in excellent shape 27 years later. Sadly my last bottle of this one (purchased back when I owned/ran Passport Wine Club!) — 2 months ago

Trimbach

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. — 14 hours ago

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

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
