Alsace Pinot on Snooth

  • Have to say that the majority of the PG we had in Alsace was really good, unfortunately, I haven't found any of those here in the States. Checking my tasting notes we have had some fairly decent Gris from Willamette and since we'll be there for the week of the 4th, we can do some more in depth analysis. I have also had a Balletto and an Arista f... Read More

  • The Alto Adige is where I was talking about having had good pinot grigio further north, up towards the Dolomites and the Tyrol. In some ways similar to Savoie in France where you get all those alpine flowery notes and minerality and other points of interest in relatively unknown whites.Mike, you mentionZemmer,Castelfeder, andDonna Almafrom the A...

  • Haven't read Mike's blogpiece yet, but am with you OT, and my response to the OP's question in the header is 'as a rule, no'. On top of those issues you mention I also often encounter damaged bottles so you take a lesser, weaker generic wine to start with and drop it even closer to zero.Good pinot gris or grigio does, however, exist. Good ones i... Read More

  • Yeah, it's back! Thanks Mark A. for the fix, sorry I broke Snooth.DM, next after the rieslings it was pretty much a tie between the spicy, aromatic gewurtraminers and the dry but fruit forward pinot gris'. The sylvaner and pinot blanc were very good as well, just not nearly as complex. On the other hand we also had some really good muscat, every... Read More

  • Hard to compare this Total Wine purchase to what we just experienced on our trip to Alsace last week but this isn't bad, more of a basic old vines Pinot Gris. Just a bit of residual sugar, ripe pear, lemon cream, medium acidity and a medium finish. Not overly complex with a somewhat viscous mouthfeel. Read More

  • Weinbach is good, as mentioned earlier. And so are so many of the rieslings in the area; glad to see you're enjoying them. Took me a few encounters to adjust to them since I teethed on German rieslings, but very much enjoy their style for a long time now. No one getting on the gewurtz or pinot blanc or even sylvaner bandwagon?Need to remember th... Read More

  • Yesterday was Kientzheim day. I looked into renting a car for a day trip, went to the Avis web site and saw some fairly high rates for some very small cars $50-$70 for one day. Decided that the price was a bit steep but clicked a bit further in the booking process. When I got near the last step the "extra" charges showed up - more than doubling ... Read More

  • Emark, we were told today that Alsatian wines are 100% of the grape variety on the label, none of this 75% stuff here. Edelzwicker is a white blend which can be any combo of whites.We had a great time in Ribeauville today. One thing that really struck me on the bus ride from Colmar was the vastness of the vineyards. It's hard to convey in a pict... Read More

  • I'm starting this thread in order to drop a few notes and pics of the wine related portions of our Alsace trip. We're here with two other couples and although we have consumed a fair amount only a small portion of this trip is centered on wine. The first problem we encountered was the lack of rental cars due to the railway workers strike. We hir... Read More

  • Yeah, where did anyone get the idea the food was Indian? Gewurz is much more polarizing.  I don't have a father in law but I do generally favor pleasing your in-laws, up to a point.  I do agree with GregT that Gewurz is really wild and exciting at first, but wears on you very quickly.  Once in a blue moon I find one I like.There are also a few b...
