Alsace Pinot Blanc 2017

David T
8.9

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.

Réserve Alsace Pinot Noir 2016

Outstanding Alsatian Pinot Noir. Earthy notes of tar and mushroom on the nose. Fresh red currant flavors with a hint of licorice. Light bodied but still feels “full.” Interesting, and a solid value. — 2 months ago
