“MARC KREYDENWEISS #4

I tasted 4 labels from this producer, mostly slightly above average performance, although I found the Pinot Gris very interesting and a league above other producers. Surprised from a relatively unknown producer from Alsace.

Barely scratching through 4 stars, at least it was much better than those big name Gewurtztraminer. Very faint pineapple character on the nose.

Palate was young, fresh, and rich. Looks like a good aging potential. This label is up and coming!”

“MARC KREYDENWEISS #3

I tasted 4 labels from this producer, mostly slightly above average performance, although I found the Pinot Gris very interesting and a league above other producers. Surprised from a relatively unknown producer from Alsace.

This was their best Pinot Gris, strong aged nose, French toast, roasted butter, charred walnut with barrel aging. Very sophisticated and unique.

Palate was quite opposite of the nose: fresh, slightly sweet, pineapple. Not a very typical Pinot Gris. Good effort.”

“MARC KREYDERWEISS #2

I tasted 4 labels from this producer, mostly slightly above average performance, although I found the Pinot Gris very interesting and a league above other producers. Surprised from a relatively unknown producer from Alsace.

The nose was very interesting, rare for an Alsace: dry honey, charred honey, almost like some burnt wood.

Palate was almost like the nose, dry honeysuckle dominated, although a bit dry but at least it’s not a dull Pinot Gris, decent fruits.”

“MARC KREYDERWEISS #1

I tasted 4 labels from this producer, mostly slightly above average performance, although I found the Pinot Gris very interesting and a league above other producers. Surprised from a relatively unknown producer from Alsace.

This Riesling had a dry flower nose, tending towards potpourri, quite a surprise for Riesling.

Unfortunately the palate was a bit disappointing: very dry, acidic, slightly woody and lacked flavor, quite flat.”

“WEINBACH #3

My impression on the three bottles that I tasted wasn’t exciting, I’d classify Weinbach as a “classical music wine”, doesn’t have the modern touch to excite me.

This cuvée Lawrence is slightly different with better quality. 13.5% alcohol.

Nose of oak and woody.

Palate: I liked the sweetness, sweet but at a balanced sweetness and not overly sweet, getting some orange notes here, particularly mandarin oranges. Strong alcoholic nose.”

“JOSMEYERS #5

I tasted 5 labels of Alsace producer Josmeyers wine, walk away feeling was, they’re just a below average Alsace producer, nothing really worthy of drinking. Sorry if I’m too direct, I speak from the bottom of my heart.

Mild pineapple sneaked in to my nose. Palate wise pineapple taste was much stronger, also quite acidic, apparently too sweet for a Riesling.”
