There's a buoyant quality to the acidity that enlivens the creamy, finely meshed flavors of white nectarine, with notes of Meyer lemon zest and accents of star anise, marjoram and saline. The long finish goes on and on...

93The Wine Advocate

...very clear, fresh and cool bouquet, indicating lovely, concentrated, precise and fresh fruit. On the palate, this is a highly elegant, pure, rich, intense but lifted and finessed ...with fine but concentrated fruit, good acidity and a lingering salinity...

93Vinous / IWC

...Violet, grapefruit and minerals on the explosive, complex nose. Enters large and soft, offering flavors similar to the aromas, then linear and very precise, with a tactile mouthfeel and a beautiful lemony finish...

Already some creamy evolution on the nose. Extremely bright fruit and really healthy glow...Really accessible and glorious already.


France, Alsace, Schlossberg

Alsace in northeastern France is so close to Germany that the wines of Alsace and Germany are often confused. Both are typically sold in distinctive, slim, long-necked bottles, and are made from the same grapes. Alsace has never officially been a part of Germany, though it was occupied by the German military in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Wine writer Hugh Johnson has noted that despite German influences, Alsace’s “soul is entirely French. Alsace makes Germanic wines in the French way.” In contrast to German wines, Alsace wines generally are very dry, with a higher alcohol content and riper, more scented fruit. Alsace has 33,000 acres of vineyards, many of them in the picturesque foothills of the Vosges Mountains. The grapes of the region are Sylvaner, Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. Pinot Noir is also grown, though it is mainly used for Rosé wines. Alsace’s most admired wines are its Rieslings, which since 1985 may be designated as Grand Crus. Some 50 vineyards in the region have been classified as Grand Crus, and are allowed to use the appellation on their labels. Unlike all other French winemaking regions, Alsace labels are varietal, meaning that a wine made of Riesling, for example, is called Riesling. Official Alsace appellations include Cremant d’Alsace for sparkling wines.
