Château d'Orschwihr Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc Bollenberg 2007

Member Review by Robert Dallas Gray:

It can be tricky, this variety, especially at this price point; too often it's perfectly pleasant, appley and fresh, but just a bit ... dull. This, however, is what you hope for: a beautiful golden colour, perfumed, almost viognier-like asparagus nose, and a clean, red apple palate with unexpected complexity and a mouthwatering tangy finish that keeps your tongue zinging for minutes on end. At about 30 months in bottle, from the excellent 2007 Alsace vintage, this should be at its best right now.

The history of the Château d'Orschwihr goes back to the beginning of the Xl th century. Pope Léon IX of Eguisheim stayed here in 1049 during the consecration of the church of the next town. During the 13th century, the Château became property of the Habsburgs. In 1513, it was bought by the bishopric of Strasbourg, and later by local nobility. The current owners purchased it in 1854, after the revolution. In 1934, the whole castle was damaged by a fire. It was partially rebuilt in 1936. The view above dates from 1857, it is a lithography by Rothmuller. The domaine has been continuously expanding since 1986, to reach the current 23 hectares spread over 7 communes, including 2.5 ha on five Grand Crus: the Rangen, Kitterlé, Kessler, Pfingstberg and Kitterlé. It includes also vineyards on famous "terroirs" like the Bollenberg, the Hueben and the Enchenberg, the later being a monopole. The Château d'Orschwihr owns its vineyards and has total control over the yields, thus guaranteeing an exceptional aromatic concentration as well as an impressive longevity. Exported all over the world, the great wines of the Château d'Orschwihr can be found in the best restaurants. Read less

The nose shows peaches and light sweet citrus notes along with white flower petals. The palate includes crisp honey green apple with some nice acidity on finish.
