  • Albert Mann Gewurztraminer Furstentum Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019

    £37.49

    “The 2019 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Furstentum Vieilles Vignes offers a clear, intense and refined bouquet of bright fruits intertwined with lemony and smoky notes. Rich and round on the palate, this is a smooth and elegant, well balanced and quiet-flowing Gewurztraminer with fine salinity and delicate bitters on the finish. Not very expansive but elegant and linear. 14% stated alcohol with 31 grams per liter of residual sugar. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in May 2022. Drink: 2027-2040. 92+ points”

  • Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2017

    £49.95

    “Bright straw. Clean, vibrantly mineral and racy aromas and flavors of green apple, pear and lime. Ripe yet brightly acidic, this exhibits a penetrating quality on the long, juicy, ginger- and mineral-accented finish. Very compact, dense and still youthful Riesling. Outstanding. Drinking window: 2026-2039. 95+ points

    The venerable Trimbach firm, located in Ribeauvillé, owns 60 hectares and is now among the five biggest private vineyard land owners in Alsace. Long staunch opponents of the Grand Cru system (which, when it was first unveiled, they felt, not unreasonably, to be flawed), the family is now bottling numerous wines from different grand crus, such as the Mandelberg and the Geisberg, and will likely release their first-ever Riesling Brand in 2018 (they bought vineyards there in 2016). They have also bought 0.1 hectares of roughly 50-year-old Sylvaner vines in the Trottacker lieu-dit and are very happy with the fruit it supplies. Incidentally, the new releases of the estate’s two most famous wines, the Riesling Cuvée Fréderic Emile and the Clos Saint Hune, are absolutely superb.”
