Ammerschwihr is a picturesque commune located in the Haut-Rhin part of Alsace. It contains the Grand Cru Kaefferkopf as well as part of Wineck-Schlossberg. Kaefferkopf has the distinction of being the very first named vineyard site in Alsace to have its borders defined, but it was not classified as a Grand Cru until 2006. This was because there was a traditon of belnding at this site. Generally, Alsace Grands Crus are restricted to varietal wines from “noble” varieties. In addition, the soil here is geologically diverse rather than uniform. Finally, a decision to recognize Kaefferkopf’s historic importance was made. Today, the wines can be made from a blend of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

  • Domaine Mittnacht Freres Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2009


    Stony on the nose, with hints of leather and woodland spice. There's a waxy lemon/lime streak here that hints at passionfruit, all backed up with fresh balsamic tones. On entry, there's a rush of subtle pine needles followed by light melon, pear and lime flavors. This remains rather subtle in the mouth, a slightly softer example of an Alsace Pi... Read More

  • Domaine Pfister Pinot Blanc 2009


    Floral and a bit starchy on the nose, with hints of pea soup topped with crab apple and white pepper nuance. A bit of a small wine in the mouth, this is fresh with juicy acidity but also seems to be just a touch sweet with simple, slightly grassy/herbal flavors of apples that show a raw peanut-like nuttiness. The finish reveals a bit of perfume ... Read More

  • Trimbach Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2009


    Broad, floral and stony on the nose with some roasted peach or apricot fruit and lots of woodland aromas, all topped with a hint of spice. With lovely balance, this brings bright acidity and a touch of richness to the palate, delivering white pear and mineral flavors early, followed by more floral and peachy notes on the back end. This is quite... Read More

    I bought this bottle of wine from a wine merchant in Sussex for £10.Alsace is an AOC producing mainly white wines in the east of France by the German border.Indeed at some periods of history it was a part of Germany and therefore the wines are not dissimilar to those on the other side of the Rhine.AOC rules dictate a tall thin bottle called a 'f...

  • Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc les Princes Abbés 2007


    The nose showed spicy florals, lychee and tropical fruits. On the palate, it entered with a rush of juicy, ripe peach and citrus but quickly fell short, lacking presence at it's center. The finish was medium in length, pleasant and mouth-watering. (86 points) Read More
