Dry Muscat knows no greater nobility than the best of Alsace, with the in stock ’16 Kirchberg one of the finest that Ian D’Agata has ever reviewed….I didn’t get to taste this 2019 example, as Eric was still on the 2018 at the time of my visit. Based on the performace of the 2019s that I did taste, as well as Stuart’s note, this seems like another best-in-class example that defines Grand cru Muscat…..This is a very small production for them, once again, beautiful things in small packages being oh-so-worthy; it is a shame that they are tearing this out to plant more Riesling, people need to support a uniquely beautiful dying cultural legacy!…Get some!
“Discreetly aromatic, sleek and focused, this is a remarkably concentrated and elegant dry muscat. From more than 60-year-old vines. Delicate anise and pink-grapefruit aromas. Stunning, chalky minerality at the very long, clean finish. Drink or hold.” 94 Stuart Piggott
