Simply amazing. I would guess we’re talking ca 100 grams of RS here, but sooo balanced. Lots of orange and mandarin flavours, complicated by spice and hints of marzipan. Ripe peach too. In some magical way, the acidity, minerality and structure manage to hold this bold wine together. Very, very long finish. I wish more people will explore these unique wines. Foie Gras, yes please. — 2 years ago
According to the back label this is a Vorbourg Grand Cru. It's a beautiful dry Riesling and could easily be mistaken for a German GG from a superripe vintage (which I consider a compliment). Candied lemon, wet rocks, peach yoghurt, peppery finish. Lovely. — 3 years ago
Off dry. Almost like Riesling. White stone fruit. Ripe — a year ago
Very closed when first opened. This took five full days to really show. Very nice even with 22g/l rs which is sweeter than I prefer. — 2 years ago

Celebrating Bastille Day with the spring dinner of the Confrerie St Etienne of Alsace association. Wonderful menu and perfectly paired wines.
Lemon and pear. Repeat. Lots of reductive notes on this wine. Not sure I would have called Alsatian Riesling blind. Hardly any petrol. Viscous. Definitely best served chilled. Once it warmed, the flavors became too melded (lots of pear, lemon tart, and stone fruit). Needs time. — 2 years ago
Somewhat honeyed but with still-great acidity. Orange-ish in color and a nose and finish that remind me of tokaji. Delicious! — 3 years ago
