Mescal, cherry 🍒 and molasses. A stupid wine. Never tasted anything like it. Super fun. My co-tasters thought this was smoke tainted. But ‘alas’ Elsass is quite wet. 13% dry. Super mouthfeel what a trip! If you don’t get this is smokey please stop tasting wines! I guess I am bored and start to go ‘aux naturelles’. — a day ago
Got some surprise flowers for the bae.
Highly recommended from the new wine shop called Cool Wines, highlighting naturals, SoHo/TriBeCa.
I love the sweet fragrance of aromatic Guwerztraminers. And this just that — wildflower honey, potent pea blossom, and the subtlety of lavender.
Wow, packs a one, two punch of honey, cherries, tangerines, and melon. Dripping with fruit-soaked sips. This ones got some typa energy.

Similar notes to 7 months ago in September 2021. Comparing with the Pinot Gris from Dry River in Martinborough NZ. I found this to be musky with intense pear and apricot notes. Both were luscious with low acid and both finished dry. Not much in it but I gave the decision narrowly to the Dry River because of it’s brighter new world fruit. — 22 days ago
always a great bottle, it’s nearly the equal of Clos Ste Hune in this vintage. Their 375th anniversary bottling, it’s spectacular. Nose is intense and layered apricot and citrus, echoing on the palate with classy fruit driven deeply into palate and memory by the well integrated acidity. The wine is thick yet lithe, finishes quite long and clean. Nowhere near a downhill ride, I think it will hold this peak for a very long time. — 6 days ago
Terrific wine. Nose has some depth and complexity, with earthy pear and apple fruit, a honey note, and warm moist gravel scents. Fairly weighty in the mouth for its type, but with nice balance. Good intensity and length. Palate shows lots of dark minerality at first but then the fruit takes over. Long finish for a “non-noble” varietal (actually, two, Auxerrois and Pinot Blanc). I like this a lot. — 19 days ago
Good! Crisp, with tropical fruits and rich citrus. Long, buttery pastry finish lingers. 91-92. EDIT: just realized I reviewed this last year already with very similar notes (and this bottle was in a restaurant rather than at home!) I am consistent!!! — 4 days ago
Grippy, tea-like orange, kinda like a flat Arnold Palmer or something. “Forty year old vines planted over sandy, alluvial soils in Ammerschwihr. The fruit was fermented as whole bunches for a fortnight before being pressed off to vats for a short élevage.” — 7 days ago
Loaded with aromas, rose, lychee, honey. Almost tastes like perfume with the tang on the sides of the tongue. The aroma leaps out of the glass. There is no hiding that this is a Gewurtztraminer. Enjoyable even if it isn’t for everyone. — 5 days ago
