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

$31.21

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...

Zind Humbrecht 2017 Riesling "Clos Hauserer" 750ml

Pale yellow colour. The nose shows the classic characteristics of this vineyard: smoky, mineral, stony aromatics, slight reduction (influence of the rich marl), but eventually opens up with aeration on honey, citrus, waxy flavours… The palate...
