  • Tasting Notes

    • Soft, light yellow hue in the glass. On the nose, Alsace One is fresh and minerally, with light, fruity notes of lychee, hints of firestone and grass, paired with exotic aromas of pineapple and papaya. The palate follows with fresh fruit flavors; a dynamic acidity plays around the tongue, balanced with plenty of extract and a pleasantly light, racy body. The long spicy finish has a fancy touch of acidity.



  • Alsace One, AOC Alsace – 2012 – 88 points – Wine & Spirits

    "A pungent blend of muscat, riesling and pinot gris, this has a honeyed fragrance and a jasmine buzz of acidity. It's a gentle, country-style Alsace white with herbal notes to accompany pan-roasted fish."
