2016 Josmeyer "Alsace Dream" Alsace (Organic; Biodynamic)

SKU #1344651 Vinous

 Luminous pale golden-yellow. Simple apple and pear on the nose and in the mouth. Soft, fruity and easygoing, with lots of simple, early appeal. Finishes medium-long. A blend of mainly Auxerrois (plus 8% Pinot Gris and 2% Riesling). This is the third vintage of this wine, initially made for Josmeyer’s Québec market. The back label shows a sweetness scale ranging from 1 to 5 and this wine is tagged as a 1, meaning that it is a classically dry white wine. Roughly 8,000 bottles per year, and still found mainly in Québec, but now sold elsewhere too because of its popularity.(ID)  (4/2018)

K&L Notes

35 year old vines; a blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois and Riesling. The grapes come from Herrenweg de Turckheim plots. Situated on the alluvial fan of the Fecht river, this terroir is characterised by colluvial deposits of gravels and substrate, alluvium, and stones. Similar to the soil of Graves, this terroir produces aromatic, mature, and elegant wines. The nose is open with prominent stone fruit and mineral notes. The attack on the palate is full-bodied and smooth, developing into the acidity and precision of the Riesling. The result is a dry and generously-structured wine.
