Classic, pretty Gentil from a great producer. Aromatically rich right upon opening with elderflower, ginger, peach and lychee coming through clearly. The wonderful perfume didn’t hold up very well on the second day, but the wine still shows good texture and freshness across the palate.

Digging these 2014s from Alsace. Lighter for sure, but fresh, clean, precise. Plenty of charm from Riesling, Muscat, & Pinot blanc. Bacchus himself could not have fashioned a more magical pairing with seafood pancake.

Elegant, delicate and beautiful. Unfortunately, it didn't pair with my dinner... Still an enjoyable, nuanced wine on its own.

This makes me dream of sunny summer days chomping of spicy Vietnamese food. Lighter than expected, dry in that Alsatian way. Mineral. White peach. Fruit driven.

The Riesling gives the perfect amount of sweet and the Muscat makes it dry it enough for me. I was tepid at first but now I'm happy for the purchase. Great price and a nice blend.

Crisp and fresh. Buy some slate, an apple and a lemon. Squeeze the lemon over the apple and then rub the apple on the slate, then lick the slate. Probably wash the slate first, otherwise tastes just like this wine. I like it.
