2017 Charles Baur Muscat Alsace

SKU #1455973 91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Vivid straw-green. Muscat Ottonel dominates the nose, presenting perfumed aromas of white flowers, lime and sweet spices. Then long and clean in the mouth, featuring flavors of orange blossom and vanilla. This outstanding floral, perfumed Muscat wine boasts impeccable sugar/acid balance. It is made with 95% Muscat Ottonel and 5% Muscat d’Alsace grapes grown on the Eichberg grand cru, but Baur prefers to sell this wine without using the grand cru’s name on the label, as he believes that in this case the variety dominates the terroir. (ID) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Vivid, tingling notes of orange zest and honeysuckle hit the pleasure nerves immediately. The slender, expressive and bone-dry palate of this wine trembles with fragrance and freshness. It is intense and aromatic. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Dried honeysuckle, poached pears, jasmine and mangoes. Dry and only slightly oily, this is a balanced and very drinkable example of the muscat grape with plenty of refreshing acidity. From organically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (7/2019)
