Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow with golden hints. Nice aromatic intensity, citrus and white flowers notes. Straight forward, fresh, good acidity, good persistence, citrus notes.

Pair with crustaceans and shellfish, fresh, smoked, grilled or en terrine fish, sushi’s, sashimi’s, white meats or poultry in cream sauce, sauerkraut, goat cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast
A mere hint of green apple appears on the nose of this wine. On the palate, the green apple shows off its spritzy, lemon-edged slenderness on the lithe body. This wine is zesty, bright and invigorating, with a clean and dry finish.

Alsace Willm, France
Alsace Willm Winery Image
In 1896 the Willm family founded the Willm Estate in Barr, at the foot of the majestic Kirchberg de Barr Grand Cru vineyard. Owner of the famous Clos Gaensbroennel, the vineyard famed for producing one of the world’s best Gewurztraminer wines, Maison Willm has always been concerned with revealing the best of its terroirs and sharing its exceptional wines with the whole world.

Thanks to the adventurous founder Emile WILLM, the Estate’s wines were the first from Alsace to be exported to the United States in the early 1930s, after prohibition laws were lifted.

Faithful partners to the grandest tables and all types of world Gastronomy, our wines cleverly blend freshness, minerality and elegance; they are synonymous with tradition, terroir, Purity and refinement.

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.
