2008 Charles Baur Pinot Blanc

SKU #1053076

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.

This is a very good value in a richer white and a fine alternative to Chardonnay for a party. The nose is very leesy and creamy, and the mouthfeel carries through with good texture. On the palate, there is a touch of honey flavor, but no residual sugar - instead there is a clean, snappy finish. This wine is perfect for the cocktail hour, and will last much longer in the refrigerator door without going bad than a California Chardonnay.

Both Eby and The Bean have agreed, for the first time ever, that the Charles Baur 2008 Pinot Blanc, Alsace is so un-Alsatian-like, we are in disbelief that it did not originate from one of the villages of the Loire Valley. Commonly, the white wines from the Alsace are viscous, oily in texture - almost petroleum-like - and really dense in presentation and finish. This Gem, however, is clean, crisp, and shows attributes of Pippin apples and a lovely wet-stone minerality normally found in the Loire Valley whites, both in its opening presentation and its mouthwatering finish. 12.5% abv
