2011 Charles Baur Pinot Blanc (last of vintage) (Previously $13)
Very smooth and very creamy, this is a lightly spicy, pear flavored wine. It has only light acidity, compensated for by the perfumed, ripe fruit. Drink now.
Notes of apple, stone and almond skin mix in this balanced, lightly juicy white. Drink now. (Web-2014)
This white is soft, creamy and lush, a bit reminiscent of lemon meringue pie, with sweet citrus scents and flavors wrapped in spice. Delicious on its own, this is not a wine that needs a three-course meal to taste good. Try it as an alternative to Chardonnay at your next party. Pinot Blanc has a long tradition in Alsace, and this is an easy-going example to get to know.
