This wine is a little different than I remember, but maybe it’s the vintage. A resonant gold in the glass, somewhat viscous on the palate, equally happy alone, with cheese, with dinner, alone again, but not the penetrating, stone expression I remember from my first couple times drinking the wine. Good for what it is, but I wouldn’t mind more precision and more length. — a month ago
Awesome to try this perfect “table wine”. Does not export to the US. A friend brought it back from the vineyard! — a month ago
Happy 🦃 Day everyone! May your day be filled with laughs, your stomach with wonderful food, and your wine glass always be full!
Starting things off on the lighter side with some Alsatian white wine...great pairing with turkey. Classic Alsatian PG nose with honeyed peach, honeysuckle and a touch of petrol. A lot of mineral driven notes on the palate but not quite gravely. More limestone than anything. Apple tart and acidic finish.

Inaugural Release of this Grand Cru from old vines leased from the Convent of Ribeauville that formerly went into Trimbach’s GC Osterberg
The nose dominated by flint out of the gate but revealing marzipan, honeysuckle, and mango after a few hours ~ mango purée, peach nectar, rainbow sherbet, lime and pineapple hard candy coat the palate which finishes dry by way of lanolin, crushed minerals and an almost white pepper-ness
Torn between appreciating the dry finish yet craving more acidity... — a month ago
An amazing wine. Might it have been better years ago? Maybe. But the austere qualities are accentuated at twenty years. I am just sorry it’s the last of a case. — 13 days ago
Lemon and rose on the nose, with a beautifully balanced acidity and a honey rose nectar on the palate, and a medium finish. One of the best wines! — 16 days ago
