Domaine Léon Boesch

Edelzwicker Alsace White Blend

A gorgeous blend of classic Alsace varietals, half Riesling with some gewurtzraminer, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and sylvaner - perfumed nose of lychee and rose petal, rounded palate bringing in notes of honey and yellow peach, and a pleasant salty mineral tang. Medium acid and a finish of chamomile. Very special — 4 days ago

Holder Gewurztraminer 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

Good full yellow-straw. Ripe aromas of stone fruits, jasmine, flint and honey are enlivened by a strong note of spices. Enters broad and spicy, then more linear and taut, the ripe citrus and peach flavors perked up by harmonious, ripe acidity. Typical wine from granite-dominated soil, featuring a spicy, broad entry, then a more narrow, high-acid middle and finish; the Holder’s signature ripe yellow fruit is also evident on the long, suave finish. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, February 2019) — 13 days ago

Meyer-Fonné

Kaefferkopf Grand Cru Riesling 2016

Rich, powerful, tropical-fruited style. Dense, but dry. Probably needs some bottle time but I would expect more complexity, even from this newer grand cru. — 3 days ago

Hatschbourg Alsace Grand Cru Gewürztraminer 2013

Delicious honeydew, dried apricots with honey, white honeysuckle flower flavors and aromas. A little on the sweeter side thanks to the gewurtztraminer, none of the acidity you would expect from a Riesling in the area. Would have gone very well with cheese but instead I split it with a friend and enjoyed it over conversation. As it got some air it kind of got an oily note to it which was interesting but not altogether unpleasant. — 11 days ago
