Never a bad bottle from this go-to. Always a pleasure and always hits me with the right amount of diesel, wildflowers, peachy tannins and acidity. I’ve had a bottle on Thanksgiving every year for a decade now.

Alsatian standard, time for my periodic benchmarking. Pale golden white, excellent clarity. Diesel and litchi notes in nose. Lemon and floral flavors. Soft, rounded mouthfeel, off dry, lactic and citric finish. Moderate skin astringency. Pleasant enough blend of flavors, acids with complexity

I was looking for a wine that would pair with Indian curries and took a gamble on this Alsacian white. It paid off. I think Guy Ritchie was describing this when he wrote, “You’re fat, and look as though you should be, but you’re not.” Smells sweet, comes from a bottle that looks like it will be, but is surprisingly dry.

Pineapple and mango/peach, medium bodied with crisp acidity. Some flint on the finish. Really nicely balanced. Wish I bought a few more. Would probably age well.

Light, crisp, citrus burst. Went well with spicy Moroccan chicken.

Creamy, rich, unctuous, peach, tropical notes, dense and off-dry, but still clean and somewhat fresh.

This was a surprisingly great drink. Refreshing and a little sweet but not overbearing.
