Chartreuse de Coutet 2010 is the second wine of Château Coutet, one of the best wines of Sauternes. It offers a golden colour with sequined highlights. The nose reveals aromas of apricot and candied grapes. The mouth of the Chartreuse Coutet exudes sweet fruits such as pineapple and lime. Well appreciated for its vivacity it has a toned finish marked by grapefruit. An excellent blue cheese accompaniment.
At Domaine Binner the legacy of bio-dynamic growing and wine-making continues. This Gewurztraminer offers a generous nose which opens with fruit (yellow fruit, litchi, citrus) and a little spice. The mouth is perfectly balanced with tender sweetness, fat, and always very fresh. A wine to enjoy with savoury, sweet, spicy and exotic cuisine and fruit dessert.
Le Haut-Lieu 2013 is a dry white wine, aromatic and fresh. It presents a fruity nose dominated by citrus and beautiful touches of exotic fruits. The palate is crisp and refreshing thanks to the delicate fruit and notes of white flowers. A perfect accompaniment with foie gras and sweetbreads.
Marcel Deiss is a fervent follower of biodynamic practices; Bergheim 2011 is incredibly complex with a nose that releases notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, aniseed and pineapple. In the mouth a soft sweetness, freshness, crispness, vivacity and flexibility. Everything is very well balanced, long and deliciously tangy. To be enjoyed as an aperitif wine, with salmon, sushi and asparagus.
This Passerillé of Domaine Philippe Delesvaux offers a nose of fresh and exotic fruit (peach, pineapple, raisins …) and sweet spices. The mouth, with surprising freshness, exalts the fruity flavours with softness. Beautifully sweet and seductive with impressive balance. To be enjoyed with light pastry and caramel deserts.
This Grand Cru Vorbourg confirms the talent of Peter Frick, one of the best Alsatian winemakers. With a yellow colour and intense aromas of yellow fruits, blond tobacco, praline, pepper and brioche, this 2011 vintage is a real treat. The mouth is ample with dense fine freshness, and brings a long smoky finish with notes of brioche and limestone. Pair it with white meats, sweet and sour dishes and foie gras.
Commitment to biodynamics at Domaine Saint Nicolas is commendable. The wine offers a sappy and fresh nose, decorated with a touch of sweet spices. On the palate, the attack is fresh and intense. The intensity is gradual, revealing a nice balance between minerality and volume. Green apple and peach flesh aromas bring a velvety texture. The finish is ample and long. Ideal with smoked salmon, sushi, and fish pâtés.
