Lucien Albrecht

1698 Crémant d'Alsace Brut Chardonnay

Lucien Albrecht pioneered Crémant production in 1971 and helped gain an Appellation Contrôlêe for the wine and for Alsace. Pale lemon color, fine bubbles with a light creamy mousse and aromas of fresh stone fruit with biscuit scents. On the palate ripe apple, citrus and peachy flavors with nice mineral tones, dry with vivid acidity. Lingering finish with good balance ending with fruit, slight mineral and yeast tang. Excellent value as a Champagne alternative! Tasting Sample. — 8 days ago

Pulsion Noire Alsace 2003.
A magnificent Pinot noir. After 16 years still so complex, nutty and hints of liquorice, very elegant after taste. Just delicious. The corck didn't do well after so many years though. My next move is to visit the wineyard at Mont Are Odile

Domaine Weinbach

Cuvée Théo Alsace Riesling 2016

Quite rich & creamy with ripe white peach, orchard apples, a bit of white flowers and tangerine zest. A underlying mineral note adds complexity. There was some naphtha at the beginning, too.
Nice creamy mouthfeel with bright, juicy acidity and a bit of slaty, steely minerality. This has impeccable balance and superb purity. Great long finish, too. A lovely wine.

Exception Pinot Gris 2013

Pale lemon with aromatic aromas of ripe stone fruits, smoky and honey spice notes. On the dry palate melon and peach flavors with honey and gentle spicy notes, crisp and fresh. Medium finish with pleasant ending enhancing the smoky character. Drinking well now, will age a bit more. Tasting Sample. — 5 days ago

Domaine Christian Binner

Saveurs Alsace White Blend

medium intensity with elderflower,gooseberry,grape fruit,and zesty lemon aromas.
It has very good balance between refreshing acidity and clean fruitiness.
This is a natural, but very sofisticated and has noble finess.

Alsace Gewürztraminer 2003

A WARM HAPPY WORK ANNIVERSARY TO @Shea Bove !!!!!!
Thought I’d bring this bottle in to celebrate 😍 somehow it managed to survive being forgotten in my father’s office for years and still tastes zingy (but probably towards the end of its life).
