Schoenenbourg Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2016

Fucking Delectable. Ate my first submission. Take 2. Nose shows cracked stones, a bit of petrol, and yellow apple skin fruit. Mouth is weightier than the nose suggests. Intense. Loads of minerality. Energized with minerality and pretty good acidity. Long, lip smacking finish. Really fine. — 18 days ago

With my flu significantly behind me, I ventured to Alsace. What a knockout of fruit and acid, nearly overwhelming. — 10 days ago

I’ve had this (and know whence it came). Knockout is the perfect word. Lights up your senses.

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Rangen Clos Saint Urbain 2012

Gewurztraminer on steroids - rich, ripe and elegant with a pronounced bouquet of lychee, honey, candies lemon, rose petal, ginger and smoke. This verges on medium sweet with 33g/l RS and is full bodied with 14.5%abv. Powerful with enough stony minerality to stay clean rather than cloying on the exceedingly long finish. A powerhouse and despite the medium gold rather advanced color it has many years of life ahead — 8 hours ago

Alsace Pinot Blanc 2017

Our wine tonight to pair with my Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. Just enough sweetness (not overpowering at all) that handled the mid spiciness of our wraps.

The nose reveals, ripe; golden & some green apple, pear, more pineapple juice than flesh, white citrus, blend, orange/tangerine & stone fruit. Honeysuckle, beeswax, ginger notes, white, slightly sweet, spice, somewhat elegant minerals, wet river stones, saline, gun powder/flintiness, not quite petrol with yellow flowers/lilies & some mixed greens.

The palate is full, round, thick and slightly gluey-waxy. Delicious & easy to sip. Ripe; golden & some green apple, pear, more pineapple juice than flesh, white citrus blend, orange/tangerine, green melon, white & yellow peach and apricots. Honeysuckle, beeswax, ginger notes, white, slightly sweet, spice, somewhat elegant minerals, wet river stones, saline, gun powder/flintiness, not quite petrol notes with yellow flowers/lilies & some mixed greens. If you like cool climate acidity, you’ll love this Pinot Blanc. It’s like a rushing, clean, mountain stream. The finish is; ripe, rich, well balanced and refreshingly delicious.

Quite a nice wine & QPR.

Photos of; Anne & Jean Trimbach, their ancient large oak vats lined with tartaric crystals and Trimbach. The whole area is a blend of German & French architecture.

Additional notes; Alsace changed hands twice (French & Germany) over two World Wars. Alsace has also had two rebuild their vineyards twice after German tanks crushed their vineyards during both World Wars. Further ransacked & drank their wine cellars. If you know anything about how long it takes to replant and mature vines to get usable fruit (7 years minimum), it is a tremendous financial burden, if not disaster for wine producers.
