Lots of ripe and lemony fruit with a touch of delicate floral character, then searingly dry on the palate with a stony and citrus directness. There's a developing waxiness and apple skin grip, really powerful mineral acidity drying the mouth with a dry ... [Published Wine Pages - Aug 15 2014]

SCOOP! We have the results of the innagural Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships

Quotes

...Alsace is divided into the Bas-Rhin in the north, and the Haut-Rhin in the south ( "Haut' because of elevation, with vineyards on the slopes of the Vosges Mountains). The Bas-Rhin, which is cooler and less elevated than the Haut-Rhin, has historically been regarded as somewhat inferior. But amongst fans of Alsace wines there is much excitement about the Bas-Rhin currently, and a band of progressive, quality growers that are producing arguably some of the best wines of the entire region."
Domaines Schlumberger, Alsace Riesling Kitterle 1945, France "Wine of the Gods - at the end of the war we had no time to really work in the vineyards." This was long before the Grand Cru appellation Kitterle, but Schlumberger were naming it on the label in the 1910s...
Albert Mann, Pinot Gris Grand Cru Hengst 2002, France "Sugar is the tannin of a white wine. It will metamorphise with time" according to Jacky Mann. Delightful honey and toast, a touch of barley sugar here, with that nice truffley character developing...
"Fifty years ago these grapes would have been used in Maury Vin doux Naturel. The vines are 40, 50 and in some cases 60+ years old with intense fruit flavours that"
