This is quite perfumed with an early blast of white pepper on the nose followed by layers of floral, honeyed and exotic fruit notes that show hints of guava and lychee. Exhibiting lovely balance in the mouth, this seems light and bright on entry before the richness of fruit makes itself known on the mid-palate. Lovely depth of flavor with a hint of coconut milk accents the under-ripe apricot fruit of the mid-palate. More spicy flavors return on the moderately long finish. There’s a nice edge of sweetness here though this is quite dry. 92pts

The nose was highly expressive with peach, Lemon curd, almond skins, yellow flowers and sweet cream. On the palate, it was soft and rich yet juicy with flavors of apricot, citrus and orange rind. The finish was remarkably long with citrus-tinged inner floral notes.

Bright pale yellow. Captivating nose offers stone fruits, minerals and flowers; more classic than the 2009. Denser on entry, then concentrated, energetic and harmonious in the middle, with good limey cut to the floral fruit flavors. Not as generous or open as the 2009 but this is tactile and gripping riesling with more length and lift. More acidity here too, and it appears to have helped preserve the wines minerality. An excellent basic riesling. This dry, juicy white exhibits notes of apple, flowers and honey on the palate. This is fresh and clean, finishing with a hint of smokiness. Drink now. 2,500 cases imported. -AN ** SOLD OUT **

Predominantly green hints reveal its youth. This dry, elegant, fresh young wine is lively, frank and refreshingly quaffable, ideal for all those who appreciate classic Riesling. All this and more : it has an agreeable fruit character of green apple, white peach, citrus, grapefruit and spring blossom. Enjoy it as an aperitif or to start a meal, with oysters, seafood, smoked fish, eel, pike or perch, and goats' cheese. Serve it at 8C now or in the next 2 years.

Sometimes we think Alsace is the best-kept secret in the wine world. This value bottling is a perfect example. It's a perfectly balanced dry Riesling with ripe peach and apricot aromas.

A quaffable white, with lip-smacking acidity and flavors of lemon peel, apricot and white pepper. Clean, briny finish. Drink now through 2012.

This is dry, with earth and mineral aromas followed by quince and apricot flavors. It lacks a little zip, but the flavors linger on and on. Drink now through 2007.
