Lucien Albrecht Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc Cuvée Balthazar 2007

Member Review by InWineTruth:

Clear golden bright in the glass, apple blossom, spring flowers on the nose, oily yellow apple, lemon custard with good acid in the mouth, follows to a focused moderate finish. Pan fried trout with apples, chicken nuggets, oh my!

The history of the Albrecht family as winegrowers can be traced back to 1425 with Romanu Albrecht, who was established in the town of Thann.

    Melons and cantaloupe on the nose with some classic Alsatian rubbery minerality. Classically oily with firm acids. Fruit of white peaches. Strong peach and nectarine notes on the finish. Well priced.

    Medium acidity, well-rounded, spice (nutmeg?) a little bit creamy finish. Good example of why I like Pinot Blanc from Alsace.
