Alsacian wine is all about aromas. Floral and peachy smells fly out of the glass and many of the wines are unctuous enough to pair nicely with savory fowl, like roast quail. Alsace wines give the tingle of brilliant acidity but also offer a rich texture from moderate alcohol (some wines are 14 – 15% ABV). The producers in Alsace do not use oak aging to add spice and richness, instead they rely on a balance of ripeness and alcohol to fill out the flavor.
2012 Pinot Blanc, Alsace France reg. case price $224.92
“Straw‐yellow. Auxerrois‐dominated nose of ripe apple and pear, complicated by sweet spices, chamomile and anise. Richer and weightier on the palate than the 2013, with rose water and apricot flavors that linger through a clean, juicy finish. Though I find more personality in the 2013, the 2012 is more typical of this wine.” 90 pts Stephen Tanzer/Antonio Galloni’s Vinous (April 2015)
2012 Pinot Gris, Alsace France case price $306.00
“Dark straw. Pure, spicy aromas of citrus skin and anise lift intense notes of fruit and grilled hazelnut. Juicy, spicy and pristine, offering brisk flavors of grapefruit, lime and aromatic herbs. This delicious wine finishes with lovely cut and length and a late note of almost candied sweetness.” 90 pts. Stephen Tanzer/Antonio Galloni’s Vinous (April 2015)
