Muscat especially spring and a side liquorice. On the palate, the wine has unfortunately not cool nor usual luster....

As always, this is a good value and example of what Alsace can produce. Quite fragrant on the nose with notes of mandarine, lime, orange blossom, white floral, and a hint of spice. Basically dry, it's medium bodied with medium-high acidity. While there's nothing that really points to any single varietal, this wine fully points to Alsace. There's the body and intensity, along with the Pinot Gris/Gewurztraminer spice and lean citrus from the Riesling. Not incredibly complex, but well put together. Tasted April 2015
