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.

Hugel 2017 Pinot Blanc 750ml

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...

Weinbach 2017 Sylvaner Reserve 750ml

$47.74

Crystalline straw-green. Very pure aromas and flavors of green apple, mint and coriander. Finishes long and mineral. Precise, vertical wine in typical Weinbach style, but less piercing than some past vintages. In fact, in the hot 2017 vintage, the estate...

Leon Beyer 2015 Gewurztraminer 750ml

Ripe pear, canned and fresh peach and Amalfi lemon have an edge of Damask rose about them on the nose of this wine. The palate is juicy but light, dry and lemony, carrying peachiness as a memory on the slender body. The finish is dry, lemony and...

Trimbach 2015 Gewurztraminer 750ml

$52.08

Good full yellow. The strongly floral nose also hints at smoky bacon and exotic fruits. Then almost austere and straightforward; a very strong saline bent frames the delicate tropical fruit and honeyed flavors. Tactile but also very pure on the long...

Trimbach 2015 Pinot Gris Reserve 750ml

$47.74

The nose is fresh but shows complete restraint. The palate gently draws pure Comice pear fruit, its ripeness tempered with ample clean freshness. A streamlined precise slenderness characterizes this bone-dry, restrained and therefore utterly elegant...

This is the great all-rounder. Pinot Blanc brings crisp acid and beautiful structure, with a portion of Auxerrois providing the aromatics and lush fruit. Pear drop and citrus aromatics meet well weighted slippery texture on the palate. A hint of...
