Rene Mure – 21/02/2012

Not having tasted any pinot noir wines from Alsace, I was not familiar with the style. From a purely unbiased quality perspective I found the pinots from Mure lacked depth and structure, but were very clean pure examples of the variety.

Cote de Rouffach Riesling 2009
Talcy spritzy lime sherbert aroma, full flavour ripe citrus peach and good intensity.

Vorbourg Riesling 2008
Brighter and tighter in the acid structure, with a dusty minerality, less fruit but more expressive.

Clos St Landelin Riesling 2009
Floral wattle lemon barley aroma, was rich and soft on the palate, but requires some cellaring to fully express itself.

Clos St Landelin Riesling 2010
More powerful in its minerality and had a nice dried herbal element, exhibited finesse and elegance with spectacular balance.

Clos St Landelin Pinot Gris 2009
Very subtle smoky cheese charcuterie nose, was lovely and rich on the palate, with great volume and suppleness.

The gewürztraminer wines were a little out of balance, showing too much ripeness and sweetness for the acids and alcohol.

Clos St Landelin Selection de Grains Noble Pinot Gris 2002
Lovely creme anglaise lemon toffee aromas, but seemed to lack the necessary acid balance for longevity and freshness.
