Alsace

Lying between the Vosges mountains and the Rhine river, Alsace has been traded back and forth between France and Germany for centuries. For this reason, Alsatian wines are unique within France - it's the only region in France with significant plantings of Riesling and Gewurztraminer, among other Germanic grape varieties. One can also find some of the finest French examples of Pinot Gris and Muscat here. The best wines from these four varieties come from officially designated Grand Cru vineyards. Marquis Wine Cellars is a huge supporter of the wines of Alsace, and we routinely carry a wide selection.

Wolfberger Cremant D'Alsace 750ml

$32.09

Faint hints of lemon meringue pie play on the nose. The palate is wonderfully light-footed and very slender. Crisp green-apple and citrus notes abound against the backdrop of biscuity notes of yeast. This dances on tiptoe and would make for an ideal,...

Hugel 2018 Pinot Blanc 750ml

$32.96

A yeasty touch still clings to the lemon and green-pear notes on the nose. The palate makes most of this textural element and disperses it with bright lemon throughout the fresh and dry palate. It's versatile, light but concentrated wine. Score: 90...

$47.74

Bright pale yellow colour. The nose is unmistakably floral, but in a delicate, pure and refined manner. One can sense the absence of over ripeness, often present on Muscat around the world, and therefore it is easy to guess that this wine will be dry...

Zind Humbrecht 2019 Riesling Roche Calcaire 750ml

$62.52

Pale gold colour with light green aspect. At first, the nose is tight and begs for aeration. Typical of limestone, but also magnified by an 18 months full lees contact, the ‘youth’ reduction will require some decanting to allow the wine to...

Pierre Sparr 2019 Riesling Grande Reserve 750ml

$32.95

A pure but subtle notion of freshly cut Golden Delicious suggests juiciness, creaminess and freshness in equal measure. The palate of this wine homes in on rounded ripeness on a smooth, gently textured, creamy palate. This wine is resonant but sinuous,...
