Calcaire Rosacker Riesling 2018

Rounder, softer style compared with the other sites. A honeyed note amongst the citrus, and a soft finish. — 16 days ago

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. — 6 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. — 6 days ago

Clos Windsbuhl Hunawihr Riesling 2012

The acidity and underlying structure of this wine are so powerful it’s easy to gloss over the hint of moderation provided by the 11g/l of residual sugar that provide some extra body. This is all stone, smoke and lime at the moment. Eight years on the wine is thrillingly youthful with elegance on its substantial frame. On the palate there is a bit of orange alongside the lime, white flowers, petrol and that exciting acidity. It’s still a baby but showing very well indeed. — a month ago

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. — 10 days ago

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. — 2 days ago

Trimbach

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. — 14 days ago
