Description

A perennial candidate for the greatest Sylvaner wine made on earth, nonetheless in Alsace, Agathe’s 90 year old vines on the Zinnkoepflé Grand cru (even though no Sylvaner has the “right” to be called a Grand cru) present a dazzling multifaceted aromatic display, leading to an equally complex array of flavors in the mouth that have at once a richness and tactile sense of grip that is wonderfully dynamic. In two words: gorgeous, and class. Get some! A little * awarded here. GET WHAT YOU CAN, INSANELY GOOD.

“Orange-tinged straw-yellow. Very deep, rich notes of quince, spice, pepper, melon and crystallized ginger on the nose and in the mouth. A downright huge Sylvaner that will require a little bottle age to absorb its baby fat. Carries plenty of acidity (7.7 g/L), but also noteworthy sweetness (20 g/L r.s.) and size; in fact, this will prove much too sweet for those wanting a dry white wine. That caveat aside, this is an absolutely memorable Sylvaner and a fantastic, multilayered, luscious wine.” 94 Ian D’Agata for the 2017, NOT THE 2022 OFFERED HERE.
