Top 100 Alsace Wines - James Suckling
The Domaine Emile Beyer represents fourteen generations of winegrowing centered around the charming village of Eguisheim, at the very heart of the Alsace wine production. Located just outside of Colmar, Eguisheim was the birthplace of viticulture in Alsace and is a village that is adored by the wine lovers. The region is a mosaic composed of chalky marl, sandstone and clay in varying proportion from one plot to the next. The vineyards benefit from the wealth of these diverse terroir, which combined with the unique micro climate, enables the vine to reach its highest potential. The Domaine also has holdings in two prestigious Grand Crus, the Eichberg and the Pfersigberg, which produce excellent sumptuous wine with great aging potential.
Created from hand harvested, certified organic Riesling from more than 30 year old vines, Domaine Emile Beyer Pfersigberg Grand Cru Riesling opens with a grapefruit and peach aromas on the nose. The palate is refined and complex with mouth-watering acidity, offering subtle notes of citrus, honey and salt before moving on to a dry, structured finish.
This finely aromatic dry wine is suitable as an accompaniment for seafood, grilled fish and white meat.
"Nicely aromatic, with smoke, pine forest and verbena notes, this elegant white is open-knit and mouthwatering, offering a subtle mix of poached peach, lemon preserves, beeswax and crystallized honey.
