Alsace wines

Alsace Muscat

These wines are notable for their vivacious fruit, their intense aromas and their dryness.

Nose

This is a perfect example of a wine dominated by primary aromas. This is the only grape whose wines always smell clearly and distinctly of grapes. These intensely fruity aromas are sometimes complemented by subtle floral notes. 

Palate

When made in this dry style, this wine shows a limpid freshness that highlights the bright, crisp fruit. Vivid and perfumed. 

The refreshing hint of bitterness on the finish allows this wine to accompany foods that are often difficult to match with other wines.
