I really enjoy this elegant, simple, fresh everyday French Alsace Riesling. This is a wine that is good with simple/light meals, but is also good to sip all evening or enjoy while outside on a warm afternoon. While the German rieslings tend to be more complex and sweet (nothing wrong with this), the French Alsace rieslings take on a lighter, simpler style, and for an everyday go-to wine, I prefer this. Enjoy!
Had never had something from this winery before, but ordered this from a cruise ship wine list to accompany an onboard fine french dinner. A very nice, elegant and enjoayble merlot that we savored the whole meal.
This was unique and interesting. From my perspective, very earthy on the nose and to start in the mouth. But almost too much until you finally get to the fruit, however this softened over time as the bottle was open.
A pleasant everyday white from Alsace. Slightly sweeter (apple and pear tones) than a typical Alsace Pinot Blanc, but very enjoyable. Imagine drinking this while sitting outside on a warm day, maybe paired with a simple salad with lemon vinigrette.
A very pleasant every-day dry white Pinot Blanc from Alsace.
Just a very very nice bottle of Italian wine. I am curious though, most of the critic reviews talked of big and bold dark fruit flavors, big tannins, yet still with a soft and lush finish. I agree with the later half of that. I found the wine to be very refined, subtle, almost elegant, still maintaining that which we love about Tuscany, and yes, a long and lush finish. Maybe the fact that we enjoyed this wine with a hearty, tomato/meat based pasta meal, made the wine seem more tame and refined, but that is OK with me. Enjoy!
Just a nice, citrusy, easy drinking and refreshing viognier. And at a nice price point as well. This is my new everyday viognier.
When I saw a Grand Cru level St. Emilion at a relatively inexpensive price, I just had to try it. There is a reason that it sells for around $20, its not very good. I admit that I tasted this right after opening, and did not let it open up, but still the overall result was disappointing. While the nose was pleasant enough, the taste was harsh, almost bitter, and just not enjoyable at all. I probably could have let it open up for awhile and tried it again, but my first try was so unpleasant, I poured the bottle out. Glad I tried it (expirementation is good), but I will go back to the better known Chateaus for my St. Emilion's.
Light, clean, crisp and fresh. Just a wonderful albarino to have and enjoy anytime.
Overall, just a lovely bottle of wine offering all the beautiful things expected in a merlot based Pomerol and at a reasonable price. Soft and pleasant nose, delicate full flavors, long finish that was not harsh. We enjoyed this wine over two hours, and it got smoother over the time.
