Clos Ste. Hune Alsace Riesling 1999

Medium gold color, heavy like oil in the glass. Crazy nose. Tropical at first. Notes of apricot, petrol, pineapple, gravel and some blood orange. Rich and sweet with some additional honeysuckle in the mouth. Over the night the sweetness gave way to deeper fruit and the structure/acidity powered up. Improved every hour. Special juice. — 4 days ago

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Roche Calcaire Riesling 2015

Richness of fruit with concurrent ripeness running throughout, intense petrol and mineral notes about. Electric acidity buzzing across all parts of the palate. All traits of a long ripening site(s). Oh riesling on limestone, how I love thee. — 8 days ago

Hengst Grand Cru Pinot Gris 2004

Like a Vendage Tardive. Hints of Botrytis gives a wonderful complexity. 16 years old. Lovely cumquat marmalade, wasabi and olive oil. No hint of oxidation. Unctuous on the palate yet a freshness that is confounding. Incredible length and finish. — a day ago

@Alan Weinberg I absolutely remember, if you read my post I acknowledge the peer pressure those notes put on me to open a bottle.

Domaine Weinbach

Cuvée Laurence Alsace AOC Pinot Gris 2017

Delicious Pinot Gris from my favourite producer in Alsace. Incredible depth with nectarine and ripe lemon. Style ressemble a bit more of a late harvest Riesling. Absolutely awesome with a spicy curry. — 12 days ago

Alsace Riesling 2013

Always good to see a screw cap on a European Riesling. Aromas of Pear, green Apple and Kiwi Fruit on nose and palate. The palate also has a creamy texture with a refreshing grapefruit twist at the end with Medium minus acid. Subtly different to German Dry Rieslings just over the border. A good time to drink and excellent value for money. — 16 days ago

Reserve Gewürztraminer 2014

Botrytis stands out - rubber, honey, burnt popcorn, and ginger on the nose. Greater body than any other gwertz I’ve had. Spicy ginger carries throughout, rounded by honey and floral notes. White peach and apricot fruit. Very enjoyable expression of the variety. — 8 days ago
